Sugared Thoughts and Some Sugar for a Lucky Winner!

Today's card combines three challenges:
SCS Color Challenge: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa and Blush Blossom

I cased her beautiful card here. I changed images, colors, and the layout slightly.

Congrats, Jessie!!! You are a wonderful stamper!
and for the
Central Theme Dirty Dozen/Fan Club Challenges: All That Glitters

It's always so hard to get a good picture of sparkle! But IRL the flowers are lovely and the colors so warm and rich. I covered my Cuttlebug folder with Close to Cocoa ink and then ran it through, so that the background would be darker and have a negative effect. The flowers are stamped In Cocoa and then watercolored with Ruby Red reinker and an aqua brush. I just use a cheap Hobby Lobby brand, and it works fine for a fraction of the cost of other brushes.

The frame by Portafolio has beautiful designs on it, but the picture is a little dark to see those. (Kelley, if you are reading this, no comments on my dark picture! haha!)

Thank you to all who entered the blog candy contest! Here is the winner:
