Sugar Nellie Forum #22 & Sugar Bowl #43 - Sugar Nellie Entangled A Little Hug

The weekly Sugar Nellie Forum Challenge on Paper Craft Planet involves using more than one Sugar Nellie stamp so I literally entangled Kathy Hare with Leanne Ellis or put another way: used Leanne Ellis's "A Little Hug" to wrap around Kathy Hare's "Entangled". I used  the Sugar Bowl Challenge #43 sketch by Judy with the optional theme of including buttons (using some of my "gems with two holes" which I previously concluded are really  jewelled buttons) & the colours from two photo inspirations (Passion For ProMarkers & Fab 'n' Funky). "Entangled" was masked after stamping so I could stamp over her with "A Little Hug" to form the frame. The card can be used for a number of occasions as there is no sentiment - 'Thank You', 'Birthday' or 'Just A Note' cards being those that are often needed.

Stamps Sugar Nellie Kathy Hare Entangled, Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis A Little Hug
Inks etc... Memento Tuxedo Black (images). Victorian Velvet Distress Ink for inking cardstock & paper edges.
Colouring ProMarkers, Letraset Black Fine Line Drawing Pen, Inkssentials White Opaque Pen, Stickles Glitter Glue (Ice Stickles Crystal Ice), Dovecraft Chalks (Shimmer) for background.
Cardstock Textured white from "stash".
Paper K&Co BW Madeline.

The red gem & iridescent jewel buttons are from "stash".
