Sugar Bowl challenge

I had some time this evening to make a card for The Sugar Bowl and it is a great sketch from Kathy with the option of using pearls (you have to add the pearls if you want to be entered to win the prize).
I have tried something a bit differnet to my usual style and I maybe got a bit carried away with the ink but I had loads of fun anyway. Let me know what you think!

I'm sorry about the picture, it looks really blurry but no matter what I did it just went all weird on me so in the end I just gave up and posted it as it is.
I used my Basic Grey Porcelain papers again. Sorry but I love em. I will get sick of them soon, well maybe I will lol. They are just so pretty I can't help myself. Anyway I have inked the edges of well everything really!!
I have obviously used a Sugar Nellie image image and coloured her with copics.
The sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp, I inked the card with som eplain brown ink then stamped the sentiment on top with a darker distress ink. the lace was white but it got the works with the ink too, as did the little roses. Told you I went a bit mad with the ink lol.
The little decorative corner I made with a peel off. I stuck the peel off on some card then inked over it and cut it out, then peeled the sticker off to reveal the negative off the peel off. I quite like the effect it gives. I never use peel offs butI have stacks of them from when I used to use them ages ago, so they came in handy.

Image: Sugar Nellie
Designer Papers: basic Grey Porcelain pad.
Sentiment: Anna Griffin
Embelishments: Kanban pearls, Prima flowers from Aries Crafts, Lace and roses from stash

Hope you are all having a fab day/night depending on where you are in the world :)
