Hey Little Birdie - Sugar Nellie

Thanks for stopping by and I have some fabulous news to share with you.  I am now a DT member for Sugar Nellie's Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog and an official Sugar Bowl Sweetie (pleased as punch about it too).  There were some fabulous entries and I honestly didn't think I stood a chance so it was a very welcome email when Fiona asked me to join the team.  It's extra special over here at the Sugar Bowl because after a break, the team is back and celebrating the 9th birthday (Wow!).
To enter the challenge, there's three simple rules:   You must follow the challenge theme (it's Anything Goes so that is Easy Peasy, right?),  your entry must include a Sugar Nellie image and finally, you  must link your project to The Sugar Bowl.  The first place winner will receive a prize of 4 SN digis with the second prize of 2 digis.
I love these sweet little fairies and decided to keep the card clean and simple so an image, a sentiment and a little Frantage is all I did.  The image is Hey Little Birdie which you can purchase at Funky Kits and I found the freebie sentiment at Cards and Scrap.  For more inspiration, head on over to the Sugar Nellie Inspiration Blog and there's more to be seen on the Facebook Fan Page.
Challenges:
Crafty Little Fairies - Sparkle & Bling
In the Pink - Sparkle & Bling
A Random Fan - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Love to Scrap - Anything Goes
Sparkle n' Sprinkle - Anything Goes with glitter, embossing powder and/or flocking
