Sugar Bowl challenge card

Well, I hope you haven't suffered too much from the wind we had last night!! We had things blown around all over the place here. My girls have (or rather, had!!) a wooden castle in the garden which ended up in pieces up the lawn. Not good!!

Oh well, on to cards...!! This is my card for the current Sugar Bowl sketch challenge. The challenge was also to use the colours pink and brown. I made this for my mother-in-law's birthday which is today - Happy Birthday Ann if you're reading this!!

The image is one of the Gorjus girls and I have coloured it with my promarkers.
The pink circle has been embossed with the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder and then I highlighted over the top with beige Papermania shimmer chalks. All the edges have been inked with Colourbox fluid chalk in Chestnut Roan.
The 'Just for you' stamp was a freebie on one of the latest Creativity magazines. I stamped it with the same fluid chalk.
The papers are from the Clare Curd Signature Range Big One paper pack. Brads and ribbon both Papermania. Paper flowers from my local craft shop (and the home of Sugar Nellie!!).
Thanks for looking!
