A Spoonful of Sugar...and no calories!

Hello all. I'm back today with a little bit of sugary sweetness in the form of this gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp. I just love this image because it's cute, bit not TOO cute if you get what I mean, which means that it will appeal to a broad range of card  recipients!

Although this card is very simple, I went out on a limb a little bit with my colour choices and tried something a little different, in the form of apricot and lime, and I have to say, I am really pleased with the result. I think it has a bit more zinginess than my usual safe pastels, without being too in your face.

Also, colouring hair can be a bit hit and miss for me, but I think I did OK with this one....but definitely more practice required!

Time to enter a few challenges now, so here goes......

Have a good day all!
