You make my life Blossom!

I was super excited when I got the mail yesterday after work.  My package from Funky Kits finally arrived!  I’ve been stalking the The Sugar Bowl challenge site and I’ve wanted to play along but I didn’t have any Sugar Nellie stamps so I bit the bullet and ordered a couple.  The first stamp I chose to color up is Rosie as she seemed just perfect for the Spring challenge.

Erika79SpringThis is the sketch from The Sugar Bowl.

Since it is a “Spring” challenge I drew my color inspiration from The Pink Elephant’s challenge this week with all of these soft, pastel colors.  I colored Rosie using Copics and added splashed of Martha Stewart Glitter Glue to the flowers.

All of the papers are from DCWV’s Dots, Stripes and Plaids paper pad – half of the papers are glittered.  The polka dot and striped papers are glittery to give a bit more sparkle to my card – like it needed it 🙂

The sentiment was stamped using PaperTrey Ink’s Raspberry Fizz and a sentiment from Flower Fusion #11.  I die cut the sentiment using a Spellbinder’s pennant die.  I added Stickles to the Wild Orchid flowers in the corners.  I diecut the doily using a die from Spellbinders, I embossed a circle using Swiss Dots embossing folder and added on top of the doily.

I’m so glad you stopped by!  Dee
