Finally My Card For SPS Sugar Nellie

Ok, I know I said I'd be back to share my card, and honestly I thought i would have been before now, but the bug that the boys have both had as now hit the grown ups with a vengance, todays the first day I've actually wanted to get out of bed since Saturday, good job the boys have been at my mums, or else I would have had no chance.

Anyway heres my monotone card......

I went for the yellow tones, as I thought it was quite apt for the name of the image is GOLDIELOCKS.
Used to Make this card were -
Image - Goldielocks from Funky Kits/Sugar Nellie
Coloured with - Promarkers
DP - Papermania Capsule Collection
Card stock - From The paperterie (Local papermill)
And I thinks thats about it, I've kept it fairly simple and let the colours show through (I think)

Anyway girls, you've got until Friday at 8pm to join in, and you might be the lucky winner of three Sugar Nellie Images of your choice.
Thanks for looking
