Sugar Bowl Challenge Number 1!

Happy Saturday!!!!
I made this card yesterday evening for the Sugar Bowl Blog challenge.
I was sticking to the orignal sketch so well and then I opened up the card and realised I had it the wrong way round!!! Anyway, read the blog and it says you can rotate the sketch!!!! Phew!!!
The image is of course Sugar Nellie Skater Boy, I always need boys cards so opted to go masculine!!! The papers are Spiced Cider from Stampin Up, double sided and great for male cards!!! The colour combo is Really Rust, Old Olive and Close to Cocoa.
I have coloured the image with my Stampin Up Inkpads and doodled round the edges with co-ordinating markers. Edges of paper have been inked with Close to Cocoa in and the stars have been cut out on my Cricut (I havent treat myself to the Stampin Up Star punch yet, must do that!!!) I have used a Really Rust button with some linen thread. Sentiment is from the Stampin Up Starring You set.
If you would like to order any products dont hesitate to contact me at
Hoping to do Sketch Saturday later on!!
