Sugar Bowl Challenge

Oh I could so get used to these long holidays, this is my 11th day off with only one to go.  Due back in on Wednesday :(  I have really enjoyed my time off, especially with the gorgeous weather.

My card today is for another work colleague whose birthday is coming up soon.  I am entering it into the Sugar Bowl Challenge which is a gorgeous sketch from Marlena.

I have used my Sassy Stamp 'Hippie Chick' and coloured her with Promarkers.  The papers are from Nitwits and I couldn't stop myself buying 4 sets in the recent sale.  The flourish is a Marianne Diecut, Sentiment is Cuddly Buddly stamp and a bit of card candy and liquid pearls to finish.

I am entering it into the following challenge:
The Crafty Pad - Pearls and Swirls
Paper Sundaes - Hair colour combination (PM Almond, Tan and Cinnamon)
Crafty Emmas - Photo Inspiration
Wags and Whiskers - Die or Punch
Pollycraft - Anything Goes

I like your soft colouring on this & your mulitple layering. I particularly like the effect of those white dots on her cheeks & the way your shadowing defines her.
Hope you've had a good Bank Holiday.
