Sugar Bowl Blog Challenge #13

This challenge is a sketch set by Lilian, DT member on the Sugar Bowl Blog. Once again, I have to rave about how much Sugar Nellie stamps are one of my favourites. Considering that the shop and owner is located all the way in Switzerland, they are the most efficient online sellers I have known so far. Stamps always arrived within a week or two after my order and my mailing address is in Singapore (after several cases of missing parcels here, I decided not to take the risk and rather send the orders to Mum's and wait even longer!@#$%, but it beats losing them.)

This week's sketch is a really sweet and simple one and the only other requirement is to include a kraft color, otherwise browns or creams. I have not gotten myself any kraft cardstock yet so it is definitely on my check-it-out list this trip back to Singapore. I have instead used a brownish- cream (or creamish brown) card for my base. Kept it simple and covered part of it with flowers cut out from the KI lace cardstock. I love love love this little scene and attached the butterfly and the potted tulips with dimensions for some lift. Also cut out that cute little cat and attached it on the side to make the whole scene more real. I wonder if its my scrapbooking habit to minimise white space but I thought it felt really empty. I am stuggling with the temptation to get a die cut machine and some nestabilities...sighs...I drool whenever I look at the cards made by the DT members around.

Hi! Your card is just lovely and a great take on the sketch! You've used one of my fave images and love the kitty and butterfly outside the frame idea.
Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl challenge and hope to see you in the next one too. Have a great day!

P.S.I know what you mean by missing parcels. :( It's a risk I always take but so far all my parcels from Funky Kits (UK) arrive 7-10 days from my order. Great fast service!
