Sugar Nellie Girl

I used another Sugar Nellie image for this card, Girl 3 and the sketch from the Sugar Nellie blog.  I coloured the image using Lyra artist pencils and a gel pen. I matted it with the Spellbinders lacey ovals. I used an 5 1/2" square card base and layered it with card stock and patterned paper from the Pink Paisley Sweetness collection.  I stitched the various layers together and mounted the matted image using foam adhesive.  I took three white paper blossoms, painted them to match the pink dress, added these interesting white buttons that make the perfect center for the daisy shaped blossoms.  I tied a bow onto the buttons using painted crochet cotton. (I have a quirky pet peeve about unthreaded buttons :P )  I added them to the card as indicated on the sketch and tucked some white leaves punched with the Martha Stewart twig punch behind them.  I added three white KaiserCraft pearls along the bottom of the vertical strip, and a white satin bow tied with the bow easy to the top right hand corner to finish off the card..
