Sugar Nellie angel

I seem to be on a roll with sugar nellie images at the moment, funy how you seem to go through phases, well I certainly seem to, or is it just that they have some fab stamps?

The challenge at the sugar bowl is a sketch and black and white +1 other colour theme.
I'm still making christmas cards and this gorjuss girl guardian angel seemed a good choice. I used various shades of promarker greys with 15 to choose from it makes colouring in black and white easy, though I'm never sure where the white shades end and the black shades begin with grey. I added some sakura glitter pen to the wings of both angel and teddy and red sakura glaze to the heart pendent.

I used some black plaid paper and red mirri card for the backing papers and finished with 3 red rhinestones. I love the clean and simple styling of this and am not sure whether to add a sentiment as yet, will have to see if I can find anything that looks as though it belongs.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;_

Paper Pretties-clean and simple

Fab n funky-anything goes

 The Creative cottage -untraditional christmas, well I don't think of black as traditional, do you

Creative Belli challenge-'R' embellishments-rhinestones

I love promarkers-anything goes with a bit of sparkle

Passion for promarkers-something old and new ( the stamp I've had a while and the papers were the last I bought a couple of months ago, is that new enough?)

Papertake weekly-cut it out

Daring card makers-we 3- rhinestones

The Sugar bowl -sketch and colour theme
