A Little Bit of Sugar

Back in February, I won a bit of sugar...Sugar Nellie that is! Last week, they finally arrived. Two darling, yet to be released Elisabeth Bell stamps. LOVE THEM!! I had both stamped and colored and ready to make up into a project. The Sugar Bowl challenge this go around is cards/projects for Mom. I know my mom is going love getting this card! I haven't decided if it will be for Mother's Day, her birthday, Easter, or just because I'm thinking about her. Just because will come the soonest, and I've got a couple of mini-books that need to head her way, so that's the most likely. She loves getting handmade cards and keeps them forever. She's one of those people you put a little extra into the card for because you know she'll treasure it, rather than trashing it.

Basketful of Happiness by Elisabeth Bell, from Sugar Nellie at Funky KitsI used this week's cupcake challenge sketch #59 that Miss Taylor does. I turned the sketch on its side to accommodate my vertical image. As most of my cards are either hand delivered or tucked into a package of other things, I rarely worry about envelopes. That gives me a lot of freedom when it comes to card sizing. I over sized this one in length by 1/2 inch, so it's 6 x 4 1/4.

The card is colored with Prismacolors & blended out with baby oil, ink is Memento Tuxedo Black. Cardstock is Prism for the card base, My Mind's Eye for the patterned and Gina K Pure Lux for the image. The ribbon is Ribbon FX from Hobby Lobby. The image is available Funky Kits now!
