Choose - Sugar Nellie

My inspiration card for Sugar Nellie this week is using Choose, designed by Leanne Ellis and you can find her at Funky Kits.
http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/
I like these images and have several of the stamps.  They are a little funky and primitive and I like the look of them.  I had an awful time deciding on those sparkly hearts, in fact for the first week of this card's life there was a big green flower where they sit.  I was never really keen on it so I eventually pulled it off and added the hearts instead and I am much happier with them than the flower.
Don't forget to enter the challenge at the Sugar Bowl and there's always plenty of inspiration on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page.
Thanks for stopping by!

You've really made a wonderful job of this gorgeous card Marilyn.. I always love Leanne Ellis's designs, and your colouring is spot on. I also love the sparkly hearts too.... I think that was the right decision! But I'm glad to know someone does the same as me.... over-thinking!
