The Sugar Bowl Challenge.

This weeks Challenge is to follow the sketch over on The Sugar Bowl blog click here for details -to add also an option any kind of zig zag - stitching, cutting, boarders.

I didn't use any papers on this card, as I only have one variety and wanted a change! I've highlighted the pearlised card with red card and stamped the sentiment using versamark and a silver glitter embossing powder.
The pointsettias were hand made using a rose leaf punch and layered up with gold glitter in the centre to give a sparkle. The best find in my crafting box was the pinking shears that were passed down in my family from a neighbour - they are over 80 years old and still working well, once used by a prized dressmaker and now I'm using them in my crafting!

Items used:-

Sugar Nellie stamp stamped with mimento ink - papermill card & paper - rose leaf punch from woodware - Promarkers - other items from my stash.


  1. Beautiful card! Love the image and the beautifully made flowers. You're lucky to "inherit" those pinking shears. :)
