Windy Days

If you follow my blog you know I love the Sugar Nellie stamps. The new fall set is literally in the mail. Since I was out of town and didn't bring my laptop, I had my sister watching for the release and she had all my info to place the order ASAP. I can't wait to get them!!! They are soooo cute. I'm getting into the fall mode and I know I will have alot of fun coloring the images.

I decided that since I love them so much I should do the Sugarbowl challenges. Their sketches always have layers, which I love and I look at the very talented people that participate and I wanted to play.

This was a sketch challenge and you needed to use buttons. Isn't this little girl cute standing in the wind? I thought this was adorable and I could do alot with her. I used some Basic Grey paper and button brads. I hope the button brads fit the button criteria of the challenge. It also gave me a good reason to use a new spellbinders die I bought yesterday. I thought it needed some dressing up so I added the pearls and the pearlized stickles. I folded the corner to keep with the sketch but thought it still needed something so I added the bow and the pearl.

As I uploaded the picture I can't see all the glitter but I stickled the "wind", flowers on the image and the silk flowers on the card.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like my card.
