Bumble Bee Blue

I made this card for three different challenges - this week's challenge at All Things Sugar Nellie, which is BLUE; The Sugar Bowl layout challenge; and the Simon Says Stamp challenge to Go Dotty

I love this Sugar Nellie stamp - she's so cute! 

I've only used a few different inks in watercolouring this card - isn't it amazing how many shade variations you can get from one ink??

I added a little sparkle to her wings too...

Here's the sketch I chose from The Sugar Bowl:

  4. WELL... if anyone so much as goes NEAR this card (which is taking pride place on little miss' book shelf) there is a lot of loud shouting and a little pushing (generally of 6 year old boys) out of this little girls room. You get the idea. Oh, and there was a big gasp and "ooooh" when she got this Danielle. Thank you x Kira
