Hi! Two days to go. I should be painting the windows but since the weather is awful, it's raining, then decided to do some other kind of painting instead. Yesterday I received my Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits, they host a challenge on their Sugar Bowl blog and this time is "anything goes". So I grabbed the lovely "Bloom" and made a pretty card, which I'm planning to give to my god-daughter Paola on her 15th birthday. 

So, here is my entry ;)

Love it! Isn't it cheerful and sweet?

Materials used:
  • Bloom, Sugar Nellie Stamp.
  • Orange matte cardboard for the card.
  • White Opalina cardboard to stamp the image (it's not glossy but it's slightly shiny).
  • Bright orange paper, to make the bottom.
  • Sizzix, textured impressions folders, "Dots & Flowers Set".
  • Rolling pin (I don't have the Sizzix machine).
  • Water to moist the paper (and make easier the embossing process with the rolling pin).
  • Memories, pigment inkpad, color: Unicorn.
  • White Lace.
  • Glue stick.
  • Markers (Berol, Pelikan, Stabilo 88, Amigo, white gel pen and some generic ones).
  • Glittery sticky make-up (the one used for fantasy make up, used on the flowers).
  • Royal Coat, glossy accents.
  • Flower sequins.
  • Self adhesive rhinestones.
  • Butterfly cardboard accent with opalescent glitter.
Have a crafty weekend ;)
