A new challenge for me!

Morning everyone. Half way through the week, and it's Caide's last exam today, so I am jumping for joy!! And only 1 week until they go on school holidays, yahoo. 2 weeks of down time, really looking forward to it.

The challenge I am talking about today is the challenge over at the Sugar Bowl, and it's the first time I am taking part. The gorgeous little Sugar Nellie stamp is another one that Poala stamped for me, and she is just too dear. I love this image! The card I created is based on this sketch:

It's a really lovely sketch. I actually can't believe I never used to use sketches. Now I enjoy the process of using a sketch SO much, it just takes out all the hard work and leaves the fun bits of putting a card together!

Anyway, here is my card and close-up of my colouring:

I had better be off. I have a hectic few days ahead. I am frantically trying to make a batch of cards for Friday. My sister is selling flowers at a flea market in Scottburgh, and she has asked me for some cards for her table. I am going to give them to my Mom when she comes to watch Caide taking part in SACSSA at Kings Park on Friday. Hope you are all having a great week!

Hi Rene, on the envelope question, I was lucky enough to get a whole box of 15 x 15cm envelopes from work. Nice white ones, which they didn't need anymore. I would also love to know where to buy them.
I have an envelope maker though and it works really well, just easier if they're already made ;-)
Great card!
