Sugar Bowl # 2

Here is my card for this weeks Sugar Bowl challenge. The challenges is 'Threes'....three different papers and three different embellishments. I have used three papers from the same range by We are Memory Keepers. The papers have great names - fiddle faddle, silly sally and wishy washy. I think I have the three embelishments well covered - flowers, gems, ribbon and pearls.

This card has also two firsts -

I treated myself to a few copics pens (thanks to 'love to doodle' for some great advice) and this is the first image I have coloured with them. What do you think?

I downloaded Picasa 3 (free) to edit the photograph (I normally just bung them on regardless). It has sharpened the image and has made the colour more true. It also crops to a better size.

I have to say I am feeling quite pleased with myself!

Hi Liz
What a delicious creation!
I use picasa 3 too, did you know there's a button on the bottom which says blog this which posts it directly to your blog. Saves some time!
Thanks so much for joining the second challenge from The Sugar Bowl!
You really are too sweet!
