Little Boy Blue (The Sugar Bowl)...

Hi again!
The other day I treated myself to this new Sugar Nellie 'Adorables' digi called 'Nathan'. I couldn't wait to use him!
I have based this card on the latest Sugar Bowl sketch, (my second entry), but wanted to used my new Fleur De Lis squares, rather than a circular shape as illustrated on the sketch...so please remove my entry ladies if it won't do.
There is also a 'use purple & green' option, but I just had to give this little cutie his first outing in blue....no other colour would do! Not very good at following rules am I...lol!

I coloured the little sweetie with my Copics.
The dp is from a Papermania Capsule pad.

I also used;

Nestabilities Reverse Wonky dies - I used the second largest die to cut out the image, using the 'out of the box' technique for ted's foot. (I have a tutorial on this technique HERE)
I then drew around the same die, and cut out by hand for the cream mat. The next die up would have made the cream mat larger than I wanted.

Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Squares from HERE,

Vintage Core'dinations card,

Corrugated card,

Sakura clear glaze pen (for ted's nose & eyes!),

String & buttons,

Card Candy.

I will enter this card into;

Card Ideas - Guys
Wee Memories - all things adorable
Fussy & Fancy - for a child
Copic Creations - use fave paper for Copic colouring (Ryman's smooth)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
