Two pretty Sugar Nellie girls

No card from me yesterday but I spent some time colouring these 2 images last night ready to make the cards today. This is one of the first SN stamps I bought and is probably my favourite stamp and I haven't used her for far too long. There is a lot to colour and a lot of detail which is something I miss with some of the newer stamps, much as I love them. The fabulous colour scheme is for the challenge at The Craft Garden. That plum is so rich and goes so well with the green. I added a touch of pink otherwise the plum would have been overpowering. Papers are Basic Grey Wisteria and the roses are Wild Orchid. I punched the butterfly from the same paper as the Nellie cut circles and added some butterfly ribbon.
Other challenges:
Friday Sketchers Fab sketch
Sir Stampalot Blossoms and butterflies
Passion for Promarkers Gratitude
I love Promarkers Wings
Flutter By Wednesdays Open theme

I used the lovely sketch from Create 4 fun for my second card. The papers are Basic Grey Euphoria and are perfect for the photo inspiration challenge at Basic Grey. The photo is of a girl's bedroom so I went for a girly card. I used 4 different flower punches and added some gems, pearls and ribbon. The faux stitching (running stitch, french knots and cross stitch) are for the challenge at Totally Gorjuss.
