Bumble Bee

It's been ages since I joined in with the Sugar Bowl Challenge...but I had a little play this afternoon...and made a card using their sketch. The image is 'Bumble Bee' by Sugar Nellie which I coloured with watercolour pencils, adding some sparkle with a Sakura Stardust pen and cut out using a craft knife. The papers are from the 'Kioshi' pad by BasicGrey, and I embossed the plainer ones using my 'Kassie's Brocade', 'Victoria' and 'Floral Fantasy' folders...sanding over the raised areas to reveal the detail. The sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly, and the lace is from Hobbycraft.

Challenges for this card:
