Good evening everyone, hope you have had a good day. Took my daughter shopping today - she spent more than me on craft items!!!! Then she spent the afternoon making cards - one of which she has posted tonight - The Dragonlettes  - please check it out and leave her some love.
My card for today is for the challenge at The Sugar Bowl where you have to use a Sugar Nellie stamp, and the sketch shown here.

 I have had this stamp for rather a long time - Daisy - but never been happy with the way I have coloured her.


Anyway, Dawny P at the Pink Piggy recommended this Ultra smooth card which is great and you can get it at Craftwork Cards. The image stamped perfectly and the Promarkers literally glide over the paper. So Daisy is finally having an outing.

I have used papers from My Minds Eye called Bloom & Grow, duly distressed and inked with Tim Holtz Peeled Pain distress ink. I have used the Spellbinders Labels 2 for the image and the mount. I have used ribbon and lace underneath and finished the card off with some glittered roses as the challenge also requires flowers.

Have a great evening everyone
