Good Afternoon...
The new challenge at 
is Anything Goes (with a Sugar Nellie Image). 

The prize for the lucky winner is four Sugar Nellie Digital Images, and there is a second prize winner of two Sugar Nellie Digital Images from 
My DT card to showcase this fun challenge is made with the gorgeous 
Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Digi - Fashionista.

I coloured her with Copics and used sandy and blue Papermania card along with papers from Pink Paislee's 'Pen Pals' Collection (big gooey sigh 'cos these are gorgeous papers), to create mats and layers.

I embossed a piece of sandy coloured card with a Darice Bricks embossing folder.  I cut some bricks out and distressed the card with Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad. (I used a bit of the same distress ink around the edge of the image as well).  I want to say thank you to Lizzy Smith at Color Kitty for inspiring me to use an embossing folder in such a clever way.

I then cut out some teeny tiny flowers to embellishment the wall and added some navy blue and white Baker's Twine.

...and here we are, an adorable Fashionista...

This is a real show stopper Sue!! A lovely, lovely stamp but it's those papers that I am drooling over, it's a serious addiction that needs feeding on a regular basis!! xx
