Sweet, sweet sugar

Another great sketch over at The Sugarbowl. I have used a Sugar Nellie images that I acquired while visiting the home of Sugar during the week. The image is coloured with Promarkers. DP is Henbury Lane Poinsettia and the cardstock and sentiment are Stampin' Up!. I inked around the edges of the paper and cardstock with a brown chalk ink pad and pierced around the edges of all the cardstock.(My eldest son was caught later piercing a piece of paper with no mat under it so I now have a nice little decoration on my table!!!)
The leaf is from the same sheet of stamps.
Here is a closer look at the main image

Back to work for me tomorrow :0(
 Schools are still off though as is hubby so I will have to leave them all in bed which makes it even worse!
