Sugar Nellie GDT

Hi Crafters,
I was so excited to be asked to do a Guest Design Spot for Sugar Nellie after entering their Competition in August. Each of the entrants will get to do a Guest spot and today is my turn.
I have made two projects using Sugar Nellie images for you today, here is 'Geisha', she is new and will be in the Funky Kits shop soon.
 Recipe
7" x 7" card blank
Geisha image provided by Sugar Nellie
Promarkers
Digital paper
Papermania Oriental Stamps
Beads and findings from stash
 
I matted the image on several layers of coloured card to match the matting on the background and tie it all together. The Oriental symbols are from a Papermania stamp set that I have stamped and embossed with black embossing powder and made a type of scroll by rolling up the two ends and placing a hanging bead arrangement from it to match the decoration in the Geisha’s hair.
 
I'd like to enter this in to these challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Sooo Girlie
Creative Fingers - #57 Anything Goes
 
My second project to share today is using 'Love Letters' and it's an altered box.
Isn't she gorgeous? She is from the Simply Sassy range.
 
Recipe
Kraft box
Image - Love Letters
Promarkers
My Minds Eye papers - Adventure
SB Floral Ovals
La, La Land Crafts - Filigree corner die
Sue Wilson - Faux Quilled Leaf die
WOC and Prima flowers
Recollections kraft foam letters
Wooden 'Memories' Buckle
Gemstone brad
White Satin Ribbon
 
The image gave me the idea to make a keepsake box, for precious memories and letters.
The papers have been inked around the edges and layered up to make panels for the box sides and top. I mounted the image on to the floral ovals die cut, love this die cut it's so useful and pretty. Added the filigree corners and ribbon with the gemstone brad to cover the knot and arranged the flowers. Lastly I added the kraft letters to the side. This image was so much fun to colour and quick too. 
Challenges:
Not Just Cards - #6 Anything Goes
 

I'd like to say a big thank you to Karen and the Design Team for inviting me to play today.
Thank you all for joining me.
 
Lorraine
