Sugar Nellie sweetheart

Hi everyone!

I've been looking forward to make a card using one of the new Sugar Nellie digis I bought from Funky Kits and only today had I found 2 extra hours (while my little one was sleeping:) for this circle easel card featuring Verity. I followed the sketch and the color inspiration photo at the Sugar Bowl as required to enter the challenge.  I aimed at a distress look of my card and it was a bit difficult to meet all the requirements (colors and sketch) at the same time. Still, I'm quite satisfied with the result:). These Sugar Nellie images are so cute and easy to color! Love them and look forward for the new March release!

So, this is my card:

I took both night and daylight pictures but I'm not satisfied with any of them. As always, the card is prettier than in the picture:).
I haven't made a circle easel card before and I had to cut the circles manually as I don't have extra large circle dies. I added lace to alter a bit the blunt look and distressed a bit the edges.

Medium; copics (E50, E51, R20, E33,37,47, B02,41,BG10, C1,3)
Papers: Raspberry Road - Josephine Papers and Marianne Design 
Flowers: Magnolia Flower dies, Wild Orchid Crafts roses
Sentiment: Mo Manning
Misc.: ribbon, raffia from a gift bottle of wine (I wonder if there are recycle challenges running these days:)), Robin Nest dew drops, lace from stash (i wish I hadn't  inked the lace with antique linen because it looks kind of dirty instead of antique ...lol), stickles.

Challenges for this card are:

Pixie Cottage: use ribbon
Lothian Crafts: pastel colours
Samuel Taylor: Copic chic

Thanks for coming by again! I hadn't expected so many comments upon my last card and I was overwhelmed by your kindness! Thank you all so much!
Have a great week!

Beautiful card Lulia! I love it. I keep seeing these Sugar Nellie images on the web and they are all so beautifully colored.
Quite a difference between the night & day pics. I have found that sometimes the card looks better IRL and sometimes the picture actually looks better than the card!
I’m glad you joined us for the DYSU RIBBONS challenge and hope to see you again!

Okay, now I can see that I have to come and live on your blog! Because I rely on the posts, I am missing most of your art work -- well I am here to tell you this will not happen again!! Your artwork is too precious. I love the Magnolia die flower - just got through talking with Pat Frank and said - I adore the flowers that are homemade. Clever idea to stick another flower in the middle. This child is beautiful!
and your card is too!!!!
XO Sandy
