Sugar Bowl Challenge - Three

I made this card for the Sugar Bowl challenge which this time is 'three'. You have to use 3 different patterned papers, 3 different embellishments and 3 Sugar Nellie images. I almost left out one of the patterned papers as the torn corner bit was meant to go inside but I managed to fit in on the front instead! My 3 embellishments are flowers, ribbon and adhesive gems.

The style of this card is called a joy fold card you can find the tutorial for it here
the tutorial is by the ever so talented Beate from Fresh and Fun
This was a very satisfying card to make, it feels so heavy and luxurious!

The ribbon holds the whole thing together when closed as it is quite bulky on the inside!


The images were coloured with watercolour paints, my usual medium!

The sentiment is from a pack of Basic Grey 'Sugared' rub ons.
Supplies: DP ~ K&Co 'Hannah', Basic Grey 'Sugared'
Stamps ~ All from Sugar Nellie
Embellishments ~ Prima flowers, Kaiser gems, ribbon and flower centres from stash.
