Sugar Nellie Rosie in Lilac and Lavender

Hello and thanks for dropping by to have a look at what I've been up to.
I decided to give those little mice a rest today and have gone for a Sugar Nellie stamp. This little darling is called Rosie and you can get her in rubber or digi. I coloured her with Promarkers and added some touches of Sakura glitter and glaze pens to the wings, halo and flower . The backing paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs and is one of my favourites as it looks so delicate. I embossed the purple card with Spellbinders Impressabilities 'Flowers' and the dies I used are Memory Box 'Fairytale Flower Border' and Cheery Lynn 'Miniature Rose'. Then all I did was to add some ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Sugar Bowl challenge 'Anything Goes with a Sugar Nellie image'
