Saturated Canary Meets The Sugar Bowl and Marianne

What sweeter combination can there be than when Saturated Canary meets The Sugar Bowl?  I have been meaning to colour up one of Krista's cuties for a while and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  Saturated Canary want to see things that "begin with B" and The Sugar Bowl has a fabulous "sketch" by Erika and an optional theme of "Worn Turquoise".  I coloured up "Bella Bunting" which you can find HERE with my Copics and set about adding additional bunting, topped with buttons, some blossoms and a big blue bow. Bella's framing was made with a Round the Page Martha Stewart punch.


My K&Co bunting is hanging on a Stickled line.  The bunting in Bella's hands has been paper pieced from the same piece.  I must be mad - it was soooooo tiny to cut! The background papers are all Stampin Up.  It's a paper set I have owned for two years and have only taken out occasionally to stroke until now!
I popped on a few Recollections flowers in keeping with Erika's sketch and added some skeleton leaves with my favourite Marianne die.  Marianne Design Divas' simply wanted us to "Stamp Something".  My flowers are in the wrong place for the sketch but I had to move them and the sentiment because of the big bow.  The sentiment is Lili of the Valley.  This colour combo is a much deeper and brighter version of my bedroom  and it's my favourite colour combo.
