The Sugar Bowl Challenge #4

The latest challenge over on the Sugar Bowl is 'One'. You can only use one patterned design paper on your project.

I've used SN 'A Good Book' and coloured with watercolour pencils using a waterbrush, I've also used a little pearly doodles on the centres of the flowers and on the heart pendant on her necklace (I've seen this done on some of Poppets cards, and love the effect). Chalked the background with shimmer pink chalk then used a darker pink chalk towards the edges and inked around the edges. The patterned paper I've used is a sheet from the Funky Fairys 'Love Train', which was only available for one day to download. The green background card is from my stash. Added some green lace diagonally on the bottom of card with a sentiment from Kanban attached with green ribbon. I made a kind of lace rosette/bloom with a hair pin and some pearl beads attached. The flowers are prima's with a pearl bead in the centre. Finished with a line of flat pearls in top corner of dp.

I spent a lot of yesterday giving the kitchen a good clean and all was sparkling, then it started snowing again. As I've mentioned before Mollie loves the snow, so as you can imagine, my nice sparkling floor was no, so looks like the mop and bucket will be staying out a little while longer. Wasn't expecting the snow, the forecast was for rain, we ended up with about 4 inches in the end. Glorious day out there today though, but it must be chilly as the snow isn't thawing very quickly.

Hope everyone's having a lovely day.
