Little Light of Mine

Morning All,

Am back again with another card which is going into the Sugar Bowl challenge # 48.  Marlene has given us a lovely sketch to follow with a theme of black and white + one. The lucky winner will get the whole collection of Leanne Ellis' new ‘Alice’ rubber stamps (which have not yet been officially previewed) and a set of nestabilities. Would I love to win this or what???!!!!

Anyways, here is my card. 

I have used one of the new Simply Sassy stamps and papers from Pink Petticoat - the Lola's Boutique collection - don't think they do this one anymore - sorry.  The image has been coloured with Promarkers and Coloursoft pencils and I have added a small sentiment of my own. I had wanted to add a lilac ribbon but do you think I could find one to match - not a chance and you should see the amount of ribbon I have in my drawer!!! However, I don't think it misses a ribbon too much.

But that's not all folks!  I really went to town with this one.  I have decorated the inside of the card and added a great little poem by Spike Milligan and I have even lined the envelope.  What fun have I been having?! (housework can wait)

That's all for today - guess I ought to go do that housework - yuk!!

Thank you for all your lovely comments and do please keep coming back - you inspire me to keep crafting.

Huge hugs

What a smashing card, you really have gone to town. Love the colouring & the matching envelope is divine xx

You coloured your image with promarkers, a tip i picked up is that if you want a perfect match, you can colour a white piece of ribbon with a promarker, it soaks through, & it does really work xx
