Sugar! Sugar!

I think the Sugar Nellie Stamps are beautiful, and really lend themselves to be watercoloured or coloured using promarkers. Another entry for Passion for Promarkers!!
I was asked last week if I could make two cards for two sisters fro their 90 year old mother. I always find it difficult to make two different cards for different people for the same person, if you know what I mean!!!
Well this is one of the cards I came up with!

Again I used the papers as my inspiration and these are Basic Grey, which I have never opened, until today!
I thought the colours were very Vintage and appropriate for the age of the recipient but not too fuddy duddy!

I used my new goodies from Stampin' Up which came yesterday, and created the sentiment, which was printed from the computer!

Then this beautiful girl, was given the Promarker Treatment.
I used Berry Red for her top and patches, Sandstone for her trousers and hat, Forest Green for the leaves and grass, others included Pastel Yellow, Cocoa and Blush. And finally edged in Ice grey 1.

The inside of this card received special treatment considering its for a special lady.

The same colour Promarkers were used again, with the addition of Apple, for the apples. All the images were then highlighted with a White Gel Pen.

I punched out my favourite Retro Flowers, layered them up and then applied stickles to the centres. I made twenty of these and then dotted them around the card, in various places.

I'm not usually one for putting the age of people on their cards, but this is such a special milestone it need to be celebrated, so I added the 90 in a inconspicuous place

This is the centre of the card, when opened out!

I get really nervous when I make cards for other people, hoping they like it, and sometimes I really don't want to part with them. But now I have my Blog and can share my ideas and look back on what I have created.

Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely and supportive comments you take the time to leave.
