Sugar Bowl #65 - Color me blue...

Hi friends...well...vacay is over (for some of us...not me, tho! hehehe!) and it's time for another fun challenge over at the Sugar Bowl! Our very own talented DT sister, Maria Therese, has given us this delightful sketch to follow...
...with "blue" as our color palette!! So...I pulled out one of my new fave Sugar Nellie "Sherbet Pips" (available at Funky Kits HERE) ...and put together this little card!


Seriously...isn't she just  the CUTEST?!!! Her name is Dolly Pip...and believe me when I tell ya, she was pure joy to color!! That hair is something else!! And...those feet! They're HUGE!! (I seem to be drawn to images with big feet! My sister, Dee, and  I both wear size 11!! LOL!) Here's a close up of Dolly...

I have to admit, I didn't keep track of the Copics I used for this darlin'...because I used about a kabillion trying to get just the right shade of blue...and to get her hair the way I liked it! I used Very Vanilla cardstock (from Stampin' Up)...and the rest of the papers are DPs from Kaiser Craft's "Tea at Elsie's" Collection!! These DPs are soooo pretty that I think I own like FOUR 6" x 6" pads of it! hehehe!! I used one of Marianne's dies...and a dotted swiss embossing folder (by Cuttlebug). Ribbon and pearls are from my stash. Here's one more...

I applied some Glossy Accents to her shoes...and those gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, of course. I have boxes and boxes of flowers from WOC! I really must get better organized...so I can place another order and stock up on some of the yummy fall shades! LOL!!

So...you know what comes next, right? Of course you do!! It's time to pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a few moments to drool over the gorgeous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then...pull out your art supplies and get busy creating your own card or paper project for this fortnight's challenge. Who knows...you may just be selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie.

Our prize for this challenge is....

your choice of FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps
(increasing to SIX if we have 100+ entries!)...

So...what'cha waitin' for? Let the craftin' commence!! hehehe!! Thank you so much for stopping by...and for your kind comments that always make me smile!! Sending sweet sugary hugs...until next time....
