Sponnful Challenge - Nikki's Sketch

This card is my entry for the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar, which is a sketch by Nikki. I hope I amn't too late to enter. I seen the challenge last week and I thought to myself "what a fab sketch, nice and simple". However, I didn't realise the time had passed so quickly. I coloured the image on Saturday night and then put the card together yesterday. I was just finishing it when... the kids all decided to join me round the table. Kim doesn't need much help but Jack gets a bit carried away with the craft knife and Wee Steven loves the scissors! Anyway, here is the finished card at last.

Starting with a square Anita's base card and covering with paper that Kimberley unearthed from her bedroom. The image is Sugar Nellie by Elisabeth Bell, coloured with watercolour pencils that I got for the kids in the reduced section at my local Tesco for 96p! lol! I thought I'd see what they were like. Mounted onto pale lilac card and put on base card with foam pads. The flowers and brads are from WH Smith. I added some pink stickles to the brads (sugar coated). The pale lilac ribbon across the bottom is from my stash. The sentiment is a stamp from my stash on pale lilac cs and cut with wavy scissors.

Really pleased with this one! Not usually a flowery person. Hope I'm not too late for the challenge.
