The sugar bowl challenge #24

b'day card (1)

b'day card (1) close up

My card today is for the the sugar bowl challenge, which this week has a gorgeous sketch by Marlene to follow (& the must include option is zig-zag). I’ve used a sugar nellie image from the home grown autumn kit (which I’m only now getting around to inking up!!) and I coloured the image with my promarkers. I used kraft card from elzybells and the full sheet of paper is SU. The smaller patterned pieces are from my scrap box and the plain indigo paper is pink petticoat, which I ran through the CB with the swiss dots embossing folder. I used my MS zig-zag embossed border punch for the strip across the middle of the card and the adhesive stones are PM. I haven’t added a sentiment yet as I don’t know it will be for. I really liked the layout and didn’t add any extra embellishments as I didn’t want to spoil it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Edited to add - thank you to Marianne for pointing out that I couldn't combine my sugar bowl card with other challenges if I wanted to be included in the draw for the prizes - thanks hun - maybe I should pay more attention to the rules in future lol :)
