Sweet Sugar Challenge

Challenge 5 this week for the Sweet Sugar Challenge Blog is ...

to make TWO (yes two!!!) cards for those very hard people in our lives - men and
boys! So get your creative thinking caps on and make two male themed cards
.

Here are my two
This first one is using Simon in shorts from the Sugar Nellie Lola collection. I've had these papers for quite a while but never used them and thought how well they would go with Simon. I paper pieced Simon's clothes this time with some co ordinating scraps of paper and used prismas and zest it for his body parts and hair. I added the thick yellow ribbon to the bottom so I could make the shell embellishments stand out. The blue fish are little stickers. The papers are from Memories Complete.



My second card is using the cowboy Sugar Nellie stamp. I again paper pieced his clothes and coloured in his face and hair with prismas and zest it. All the papers and embellies are from a Stampin Up Simply Scrappin set called "Round Up".






To take part in the challenge just make your card, post a comment on the blog for this challenge along with your name and a link to your work. Easy!
There are again some fab cards made by the Design Team on the blog so why not go over and have a peek. You can find it here.
