CES Challenges #47 ~ Feeling The Blues...

Hi again! I'm back with my DT card for CES Challenges!
Vicky has chosen a fab theme for us this week...

'Feeling The Blues'

I used this fab Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis stamp from Funky Kits, and followed the Sugar Bowl sketch...with a theme of lace.
I used my Copics to colour, and 'Summer Sky' Memento ink & sponge dauber for the cloudy background.

First Edition papers, Baker's Twine, Wild Rose Studio brad, Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I also used;
These fab Lacey Squares Nestabilities ~ Pink Gem Designs,
Sewing Machine (lol!...stitching a bit wonky as bobbin was almost empty)
Flowers that have been in my stash for years,
Ribbon & threading lace,
Sweet little bird cage charm ~ ebay

Thanks again for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. I'm still a bit behind with commenting myself so really sorry about that.
We had a nasty fright yesterday. My girls were outside waiting for the ice cream van as they usually do. When the van pulled up it caught my eldest daughter's bike that she was holding on to, and pulled it under the van! A couple of men came to the rescue and managed to free the bike...which had some damage, but I'm just so grateful my Daughter didn't get pulled under with it! (doesn't bear thinking about!) However it left her very shocked, and she still seems a bit shaky today.
Hopefully I should have chance to catch up with you all later as my girls are off for a sleepover tonight.
Many thanks for stopping by!
