Sugarbowl sketch challenge and Cute Daisy May Guest design team member

I'm hoping everyone's having a great Sunday! It's warm and sunny here today which is a nice change from the wet weather we've had lately.

I decided to make my Sugarbowl card today for the sketch challenge and came on to my blog with a nice surprise from Linnie at Cute Daisy May digi designs, that I had won a Guest- design spot for two months:-) Very exciting stuff for me:-) so my day has been wonderful!

On to my Sugarbowl card: I used my Daisy stamp by Elizabeth Bell for Sugarnellie, I changed the daisies to blue flowers for the challenge which is use blue and green, which with my scenic route DP was Blue greens and yellow greens which I think fit in with the blue and green theme nicely:-) the line is Metropolis I believe, the CS is bazzill, I distressed all the papers a bit and ran one of my copic markers on the edge of them to give a darker tone to the edges. the leaf punch was a Martha Stewart, and the flowers are random from my flower bin, I added a piece of green organza ribbon at the bottom .

Copics used were: E000, E00, E11, R20 face and arms, E35, Y23, Yr23, Hair, BG72, BG75, BG000, G99, YG97, clothes, flowers and grass. Theres a tiny bit of sakura gelly pen in stardust on her belt, and a bit on the flower centers in yellow:-) I used a glue pen on the leaves and used ultra fine glitter to dust them with, I needed a bit of shimmer, and a few tiny flat back pearls from Michael's craft store. I think thats it, I hope you all enjoy what I've come up with

  12. Michele, Such a cute card! I love the colors and the papers. I had fun playing the Sugar bowl as well.

    I think you should definitely give it a try at Midnight Madness Sketch, you're cards have beautiful color, and not to mention up to $500 prize they are giving up, each week's entry is one more chance at the pot.
    Please take a look,
