The Sugar Bowl Challenge #13

There's a fab sketch for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl Challenge, with the additional challenge to use 'kraft coloured card' on our cards. I don't have any 'kraft' card, but found a sheet of a similar colour in my BasicGrey 'Granola' pad, which I embossed with the Cuttlebug 'Birds & Swirls' folder. I used another sheet from the same BG pad for the background, and coloured 'MacBeth' to match. The two larger flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the rose in the centre is from Hobbycraft. The bow is tied using a piece of tape that I've recycled from the label on a skirt I bought last week! lol
I couldn't resist adding a few pieces of card candy to the bottom right corner, as it looked a bit bare.
