Bluebell girl for the Sugar Bowl!!

Hi everyone

Hot enough for you!!  Too hot for me and have hidden out in my craft room this afternoon to make this card using the Sugar Bowl current sketch from Judy (which I've rotated.  I've used this fabby little lovely from Sugar Nellie and coloured her in blue tones with my Promarkers.

I cut her out with nesties and then while it was still in the frame, shaded with chalk so that the white edging was left.  Papers are KaizerKraft, and Garden Party from DCWV.  Flowers are cut with the EK success retro flower and finished off with some new blooms (aster daisies?) from Wild Orchid.  Oh and the extra from the Sugar Bowl is to use scallops which are on my doily, below the image (with Martha Stewart punch) and also a little on the DP

Off to get a little sun now - hopefully it will be a little cooler.  And then- shall we or shall we not go and see the new Twilight tonight......?
