It's Sugar Bowl time....challenge 99.

Hi folks and it's that time again but this year we are ringing in a few changes over at the Sugar Bowl.  Firstly the sketch has gone for now with an "Anything goes theme" the only rule being that you must use either a Sugar Nellie stamp or digital image. 
The second change is that it will also now run 4 weekly, still on a Thursday, loads more time to get in entries. 
And finally thirdly we are going to be awarding "Eye Candy" which means that entrants will be awarded a badge to wear on their blogs for extra yummy entries.  More information on this change will be available on the Sugar Nellie blog Thursday the 17th of this month.

Without further ado here is my card for the next challenge....

I have used Sugar Nellie Adorable Rebecca.  I reason favour these digital images, apart from being Adorable, it doesn't matter the size of the card you are creating the image can be adjusted accordingly, oh the flexibility, love it!
I have also used Spellbinder Nestabilities Decorative Labels Eight and ovals to create the frame, this has been coloured using the new Distress stains Antiqued bronze and Tarnished brass to make an old fashioned frame effect, finished with a little Distress inks Tea dye and Walnut stain around the edges.  I have also used the Spellbinder A4 dots embossing folder.  The little tag and sentiment are SU and embellishments are from my stash. 
Rebecca is printed direct to my card and coloured using Prisma pencils....oh I do seem to be back into my pencils right now.

The prize is the same for the challenge 4 of your choice of  Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 if over 100 entries.  The winner is chosen at random but must have a SN stamp to qualify.

Here is our new button award.


Isn't it cute!

It only remains for me to say as always "You've got to be in it to win it, good luck and happy crafting!"

Oh what a stunning card Erika! Just beautiful & the colouring is amazing. I'm just starting with pencils myself & didn't realise you could get such vibrancy from them.
Do you have a link as to what colours you used please.

Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
