Sugar Bowl challenge - Kathy's sketch

There is a fantastic prize this fortnight over at the Sugar Bowl....8 of the gorgeous new Manga Christmas stamps!! Just had to enter, despite being a little short on time this week. We have managed to finish the first of many rooms requiring decorating in the extension but boy was it hard work with the children running about! I'm not entirely sure about this card now its done, I'm not that keen on the colours but I haven't been craft shopping for almost a month now (having palpatations at the thought of how long it's been LOL) so seem to be running low on papers. Also the papers didn't seem to suite my normal distressed style which felt strange to me.....there have been no distress inks used on this card!!!!!! Still, it is nice and girly so will come in handy for a little girl and my son gets so many party invitations now he's at school!

I completely ran out of the pale turquoise card I was using to back the papers so decided to stitch around the edge of this cute little Gorjuss girl and her teddy instead. The thread matches so well as it is white cotton coloured with the same copic as her dress! Love how you can match things in with copics don't you? Both of their crowns have been smothered in clear stickles but it doesn't seem to be sparkling very much on this photo.

Part of the sketch is this turned over corner, to add a bit of interest I've added clear stickles to the it too. All the flowers have been glimmer misted also. The please include of the sketch was buttons so I've given all the flowers a pretty pastel green button centre.
