Easter or Springtime - GDT card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope all is well with you, sending hugs to those in need of the them.

I am so excited and honoured because the lovely Fi  has asked me to be a guest designer at The Sugar Bowl Challenge for this month I love Sugar Nellie stamps, they are amongst the first ones I bought and I still use them now.
Their theme for you this month is
Easter or Springtime

I was very lucky to get to choose a digi stamp from Funky Kits. I picked an adorable image from the Return to Fairy Glen series called Little Bit of Gossip. She was a joy to colour.
I cut an aperture in my (very old) papers cutting around the flowers and butterflies then layering some of them up.


Side view to show the dimension
Close up of the adorable image 



Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Sugar Nellie A Little Bit of Gossip coloured with Promarkers
Papers - (Very old) K & Co Tim Coffey
Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps SC Designs Everyday Moments

If you take a look at The Sugar Bowl Challenge blog you will see the gorgeous creation made by the very talented design team.

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Polka Doodles - Spring is in the Air
Graph'it Markers - Springtime Pastels
I ♥ Promarkers - anything goes
Creative Inspirations - It's a girl thing 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now
hugs
