My very First official Sugar Nellie

Good morning everyone...I'm still on a high from yesterday, thank you all so much for all the warm congratulations, it really meant a lot to me, I had been busting to tell you all and it was brilliant to be able to share it with you...I went to the re launch last night and got a bag full of goodies I couldn't manage without, amazing how you don't know you need things until you see them isn't it, who wants to guess what I bought?...er....papers, ribbons, more papers and a few basics like card stock for cards, oh and some lush sentiments, bet you didn't guess, yeah right...well here's my very first official DT card for Sugar Nellie, ooooohhhhhh how good does that sound lol, isn't this Bambino image from the new Sugar Nellie Simply Adorable digi release today just amazing, I have been waiting impatiently for these to come out, this image is just sheer pleasure to colour, I used distress inks and teamed him up with more of these stunning Prima papers, fantastic muted colours aren't they, I used an off cut of lace and a couple of loops of ribbon and the amazing flower is Prima too...love these flowers, I finished with a sprinkling of gingham butterflies and some pearls...every time I look at this little baby it makes me go aaaaawwwwwwwww...the sketch I used is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp and I'm also entering this for the CES Challenge of Fluterby and flowers and the Pear Tree Designs Ribbon challenge...I'm have a chillin crafting day today, you never know I might not even get change out of my jimjams...whatever your up to today I hope you have a fantastic one

You coloured that!!?? Wow!! I can't believe it's hand coloured. It looks like one of those clever things they do making a photograph look like a painting. Now I have to get the digi, and finally give in and buy myself some distress inks. Totally stunning image and the card is magnificent. A belated congratulations too. If you have a minute to spare can you tell me which colours you used. Sorry to have written you a book lol. Hugs lin
