Sugar Bowl Challenge #31

Hi girls. I am really pleased to have you here to browse my crafty creations. Thanks for taking time to call by. I never cease to be amazed when I look at the stats on my blog and see that people from all over the world have been popping in. It's great to know that the miles can be shrunk so easily. If you get as much pleasure here as I get when I visit my regular pitstops I will be more than happy.
This card was made for the Sugar Bowl challenge where we had a sketch designed by Judy to follow with the added requirement to include "stars". I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda - Ice Ballet Princess" and coloured her in using my Copics. I used pink Bazzil as a base card and the design paper is SEI Juliette. The sentiment is made from my Mother's Day gift from my son and dughter-in-law (Lil-paper-pixie). They gave me the JustRite "Just a Note" set. Wey Hey - you can look forward to a lot more circular sentiments from me in future.
The challenge asked for stars so that's why I have not used any handmade flowers but I used the poinsettia nestie in the centre as a compromise between stars and flowers. I don't think it looks out of place.
The embellishments and image are liberally decorated with stickles and glitter - I hope you can see some of it on the photograph.
I hope you will have a minute to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of this card. I love reading them because I value your opinions and I find them helpful. Thank you for calling in and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
Hugs,

  12. Stunning as always. Love the use of the poinsettia and it certainly doesn't look out of place, it works really well with the stars.
    The glitter and stickles really bring out the pinks with almost the glimmer of being in the spotlight.
