Sugar Bowl challenge

Hello again!! 2 posts in one day Wow!! I'm having a day off from work...can you tell..ha ha
I am entering this card into the CLEAN AND SIMPLE challenge at the Sugar Bowl and I have used Lillian's fab sketch.
I was at the SECC craft show on Saturday with my two friends Elaine and Maureen and we stopped by the Sugar Nellie stand and had a lovely chat with Gayle. So I decided it was time I entered a few challenges again, it's been months since I did any and what better one to get started with than the Sugar Bowl. I love the Sugar Nellie range of stamps and have been a fan for years.
For this card I have used the same image as the last post, Joy Sitting, I have coloured her with Copics and cut her out. The DP is Bearly Mine Shabby Vintage, and I used the swiss dots Embossing folder. As the theme for this challenge is Clean and Simple I held back on the embellishments,  it wasn't easy I can tell you, I'm so used to piling stuff onto my cards.
I'm off now to sew some curtains and put up a new curtain pole. Loads of other stuff to do as well I just can't seem to get ahead with anything at the moment, hence the reason for an extra day off work.
Thanks for your visit today, Happy crafting
