Sugar Bowl challenge

Phew! just managed to get this one done by the skin of my teeth for the Sugar Bowl challenge! My Gorjuss Bumble Bee was delivered yesterday, I think she is the cutest by far of the new set, love her so much! This is the last of my commissions so again has a name on. The challenge is a lovely sketch by Gayle and the requirement to use bows and/or ribbons.

I've coloured her with copics and added some luster rub on to the skirt of her dress and some clear glitter glue to her wings.

The flowers I have punched with EK Success retro flower punches and added some gorgeous red paper roses to the middles. I love red with purple, think it looks gorgeous! The wire twirl is the end of one of the roses. I have written the sentiment with my calligraphy pen and then clear embossed the tag and added a gem.
I have added a row of gems to the purple strip of card for some glamour!
Another angle just because I love playing with my new camera LOL! I still need to do the inside...yet another money pocket to do! but wanted to get this posted for the challenge! Hope you like it! x
