Sugar Bowl Challenge 30

This is my card for the current Sugar Bowl Challenge  which has a sketch to follow, with the additional request to be shabby!!!  I've pretty well left the sketch alone, no rotating or flipping at all!! Lots of edge distressing with my little Tim Holtz tool and chalks on the edges.  I was also pleased as I used lots of paper scraps so feel quite virtuous!!
The image has to be a Sugar Nellie one for the Sugar Bowl challenges and this is one of my original Leanne Ellis stamps, which I always forget how much I love!  Oh, and I also stamped the pale apricot floral paper with some gorgeous new Anna Griffin background stamps from QVC and a little spot ink from Stampin Up.  Flower is made using Bloom Nesties.

I've also received a fabbie award from Andria over at Iona-Rose designs - thanks, so much.  Trouble is, I've got to think of some interesting facts to tell you about me, so I need to think long and hard and will post as soon as I've scraped some together!! :)

She is lovely, isn't she - I think she might be called "Poise" and if so, she certainly lives up to her name. A striking colour combo, Julie! I love her sleeves! Great flower and flourish, fab papers! Love Lesley
