Sugar Bowl Challenge #11

This week's challenge over at The Sugar Bowl is to create a card following the sketch provided and to include pearls! Woah...I like pearls...I like vintage...I like romantic...I like the old, distressed look...and I like my Sugar Nellie stamps!

I used the 'Sweet n Sassy' stamp for my card. I made this card in mind for Adah's best friend. Her birthday is coming up in July and she is such a girly girl, so small and dainty. While Adah, Jesse and Carlinos will jump into the pool during swimming class, she will do a little bunny hop into the wading pool instead. Even if I hold her hands and encourage her to jump and splash, she will still do a dainty ballerina jump, all completely with her toes pointing down into the pool. That's how girlish she is. But she is just like the girl in the stamp, all sweet and sassy and she can have such a fiery temper too!

I used the papers left over from my previous layout cos I like the color combination of green and pink. Lily likes green and purple so I tried to incorporate that into my coloring and she is so early, the use of pearls and flowers suit her no end!
