Sugar Bowl Challenge No. 24 – Zig Zag


Happy Friday!  

I loved the sketch this week for the Sugar Bowl Challenge  and thought I would give it a try … my first time!    The only requirements are that you follow the sketch, use a Sugar Nellie image and include some form of zig-zag.     All the details can be found here.   



I decided to use one of my very favorite Sugar Nellie images, one of the Gorguss Girls for my card.   For my zig zag, I used some black rik rak and the Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Pinking Circles.   The  DP is from Graphic 45 – you know how I feel about that! 

Today’s card went MUCH better than yesterday’s!    I appreciate all your kind comments on my lonnnnnng post yesterday …. but, I still don’t like the card!    🙂 



Thanks for stopping by today.   Hope you’re having a GREAT weekend!



Copics Used:   R000, 00, 11, 20, 30; E000, 00, 11, 41, 42;  N1, 3, 5;  W0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

  13. Hi Mary, so I’m going through all your categories on your blog to see your cards. I’m finding cards from 2009 but hope you don’t mind if I comment on them. This is a beautiful card. the colors are outstanding, the layout was wonderfull with the image, the papers are great. Let’s talk about your coloring…it’s truly magnificent and I wondered if you could share with me what you do to give them such dimension. I see you outline them. Is it black and then a gray ouside of the black outline? My e-mail is:
