Sugar Nellie - Simply Adorable Victoria

Hi Folks!

hope you're all ok and not suffering too much in the heat?  My craft room's like a furnace so I'm running in and out of there doing a bit at a time.  It's fab to get back to some proper crafting, though.

Today's card is made using one of my absolutely favourite digis.  Not sure why but I always seem to end up doing her in pink and blue, but I'm going to do her again in another colour asap as I want to see what she'll look like.

Anyway here she is, the gorgeous Sugar Nellie Simply Adorable Victoria

Isn't she just the most beautiful little girl?

I've coloured her using my Copics and Promarkers as follows:
Copics: E00, E11 and E21
Promarkers:  Baby Pink, Antique Pink, Marine, Turqouise, Cool Aqua, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Cornflower, Blue Pearl, China Pearl and Pastel Blue.

I've kept the layout very simple and used scrap from my stash for the papers and matting layer so not sure where they came from.  I did print them a while back, though, so possibly Bearly Mine...not sure.  Always comes in handy printing a bit extra if they're nice basic papers like these ones.

The sentiment was created on my lappy and cut using Spellbinders dies.

The embellies are very simple as well, and I opted to use more vintage style ones, including the butterfly charm (Ebay), the silver Card Candi from Craftwork Cards and the gorgeous filigree corners from Wild Orchid.  The little heart was cut using Memory Box's Precious Heart dies and I just snipped off the bow and string.

I shall be entering this card into the following challenges: - blonde hair - 4 August  - Anything Goes - 28 August

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care & happy crafting!
