Sugar Bowl Challenge 69

As you can see, I didn't use the photo inspiration for this card, just the Sugar Bowl sketch, but hopefully I'll get the chance to play again soon, with the photo too.

I wasn't sure how the sketch would look with the 7x5 card blank but I'm quite happy that it's worked.  Simply Sassy Carnival Balloon has been coloured with Distress Inks, using my beautiful new Tumbled Glass DI - I LOVE this colour!!  The papers are Dovecraft Sugar and Spice, sentiment from LOTV and embellies kept to a minimum with a few punched hearts to mirror those on the image.

(I generally favour clean and simple, and also tend to keep cards fairly flat, which my customers like, but I DO love the layered, textured, more eclectic styles of others - just not that good at it myself!!)

Anyway, I would also like to enter:
The ABC Challenge - Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge - Die cuts (Nesties for sentiment) and/or punches (hearts)
CRAFT Challenge - Bright Colours
Fab 'n' Funky - Die cuts (Nesties for sentiment) and Punches (hearts)
