Cute Sugar Nellie Card

Haven't made a card in a while, not really feeling up to it.  This cold is still hanging around but today I was determined to make a card.  Got all my stuff out and just sat there looking at it, nothing jumped out at me so then I had to go hunting around all the challenge blogs and some of my favourite blogs to get inspiration.  I had already decided that I wanted to use one of my Sugar Nellies so went straight to the Sugar Bowl hoping for a fab sketch and what did I get, use any of the sketches from their sketch gallery!!  I am so indecisive at the moment this took me another hour to decide which one to use but went with Sketch no 27 lol.  I then went to the Sugar Nellie group on Papercraft Planet and this week the challenge is to include Blue.
I also got a lot of inspiration from one of my favourite Bloggers Debby and so have decoupaged some of the image a la Debby.

The image is 'Post Box' from Funky Kits coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are from the free pads Spring and Summer by Minds Eye, Pretty Please and Quite Contrary and the stripey paper is Stamping Up.  The ribbon is Craft Essentials by Cardology.  The flowers are peeled off bought cards that I received on my birthday and the leaves are another idea from Debby made by using the glacial snowflake punch from Martha Stewart.  The butterfly and flower beads are from a kids bracelet bought at Internacionale.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Fairy Tales (bit of a cheeky entry to this one, she has received an invitation to one of the Fairy Tale weddings ie: Cinderella, Snow White etc)
PaperPlay Challenges - Anything Goes
