My 1st Sugar Bowl challenge

I've made this card following the sketch for the Sugar Bowl challenge. As well as following the sketch there was the extra of using ribbon and/or bows, so I've used some lace (does that count as ribbon?), some ric rac and tied a bow in thread through the button on my flower. Not sure if I've made the most of the stamp - I realised once I'd stamped it that I didn't really know how to colour cows!

And close up

Materials/ Tools used
  • Sugar Nellie 'Custard' stamp from Funky Kits, coloured with promarkers
  • CCSR paper & coredinations cardstock
  • Lace from Cuddly Buddly
  • Ric rac ribbon from John Lewis
  • Green Tara flower, with Woodware button centre, tied with Bazzill In Stitch'z thread
  • Martha Stewart scallop dot border punch
  • Nestabilities scalloped squares
