Sugar Bowl # 60

Hollie came home from school on Tuesday with a sore stomach and ended up staying off school yesterday.  When she was feeling a little better in the afternoon she played with her aqua beads and I got a chance to start this card and then finished it last night. 

I am entering my card into one challenge :-

The Sugar Bowl # 60 - Sketch plus optional theme - Birthdays

I thought this image would be perfect for this challenge and knew it would be black and white and I always think red goes so well with these colours.  It is also the colours of my favourite team - Manchester United.  Like how this card turned out, which is something I don't say very often.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Papers - Echo Park
Image - Sugar Nellie
Sentiment - Pink Gem
Bunting and Cupcake images - Molly Bloom - free with magazine
Coloured with Distress Inks
Ribbon - local craft shop
Gems - Mei Flower
Martha Stewart Zig-Zag Punch
Woodware Circle Punch

Thanks for popping by, it is much appreciated as always.  Hope the weather is better were you are.  We have heavy thunderstorms, gales and it has got much colder.  Lots of fallen trees on the roads on Monday and some roofs were blown off properties too. Think we have bypassed summer and are ending for winter again.

Love this! :) Great card Donna, and an image I havent seen before. I love your take on this sketch, really striking and bold, and yes fabby colours.

Shame about saturday, we had friends round to watch it, and it was so disappointing :( The team are on BBC news live atm on their tour bus through the city.

Hope Hollie is ok :)

It took 3 days for our electricity to be restored, then Mr Blogger was having serious mood swings last week which didnt help me catch up at all! ;)

Have a great week,
