Late for the Sugar Bowl...again!!

I made a card with Lilian's sketch at the Sugar Bowl a few days ago but forgot to post it ...duh! lol, so I'm too late for the challenge but thought I would post it here anyway. I wasn't sure when I looked at the sketch and thought my card would turn out terrible but I had loads of fun making it and I don't think it turn out too bad :) I will let you be the judge of that though!

One of the papers is Stampin Up but I'm not sure about the other one, I got it about a year ago in a pack I bought off Ebay. I got about 80 or 90 12x12 papers for about £8 and there were quite a few in the pack that I didn't like and this was one of them but I'm determined to use up the stash that I have before buying more (basically because I can't afford to buy more just now lol), so it got used and it's kinda growing on me.
The Sugar Nellie image was one I coloured ages ago (with Copics) so I had to try find papers that matched the colours I had used on her, but it didn't really work out that way lol.
I'm getting really tired of having to buy new Copics or ink for them so I bought some Polychromos pencils the other day and am going to use them for a while and see how I get on with them. I figure at least they will last a bit longer than markers but I will see how bad I am with them first before I say if I will give up on the Copics all together lol.
The big rose I used was from Hobbycraft and the tiny ones were from Joanna Sheen's website. The little bow with the heart is another old Ebay buy and the pin and pearl are from my stash.
I wanted to do some swirly bits on it (no idea why! lol), but I don't have any of those sticky on ones like the ones Prima do, so I just stuck on some tiny pearls individually to make some swirls. Why do I get these silly ideas in my head?? It took me forever to stick them all on lol, and they weren't self adhesive ones either so I had to glue them all on one by one!! I would say I will never do thta again but knowing me, I will never learn!!

Here's a close up of Daisy, just because I was playing about with my camera settings to see if I could get a better pic indoors lol.

Right I'd better get myself off to bed so I don't sleep in for the kids school in the morning!
Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs Lora x

It may be late but it is beautiful. Your coloring is fantastic. I love how you did her hair. It is so hard to get cards made and posted. I love to do it but it really take me a long time. I love your card today and am glad you posted it.

Adorable card, Lora. Sorry I haven't been to visit lately. Life has been busy! I'm looking forward to a nice quiet crafting weekend since my DH will be out of town! I might just have to case your card. I like the way the dp frames your image. Very cute!
