Sugar Nellie and Cupcake challenge

Good morning everyone! Well, I think perhaps this dang cold I have had now for two weeks seems to be on its last legs and I was able to make a card last night without coughing all over it. Yuck! This is one of the last releases from Sugar Nellie and was sent to me by my wonderful buddy Elaine, I won blog candy from her and this was one of the stamps I chose.


The challenge this week for the the Sugar Bowl is a sketch with the option of lace and since I LOVE lace that was a no brainer for me. The hard part is giving up a little piece of lace from my stash. I confess, I am a lace hoarder and I don't want any help! Paper is My Minds Eye and I added some stickles along the edges of the image for some bling. I am also entering my card into the Cupcake Crafts Challenge which is shabby and bling. I got the bling, not so much the shabby.  Ok, off to work I go!
