Sugar Nellie Challenge #9 Gate Card

Hi Everyone!
I just love this little cutie.  Isn't she adorable? This is the first chance I have had to use her.  When I first colored her I was planning on sending her to a friend in Ca. so I  used her colors.  But !  I find that I am going to have to make another.  I just can't part with her.  Good thing that these are some of my colors also.  Well, since this entry has a lot of pictures with it I had better let you go & get to the details of my entry.  Thank you for considering my entry.

Entry Details
Image Sugar Nellie "Pen Pal"

Hair, Skin & Envelope are done with Copics
Prismacolor Pencils for the rest of the coloring
Glamour Dust,  Martha Stewart Glitter & Dodlebug Sugar
White w/Black dots Paper BoBunny
Blue DP My Minds Eye paper pack

Since I always get stuck making bows for everyone I wanted to make it so the bow did not have to be untied to open card.  So I used Picture corners to hold the image that then holds the card closed. You just slip one side of the image out of the corners to open.
Flowers & Ribbon are some I had
Stick Pens are from Quixotic Paperie
Spellbinders Fleur de Lis & Cuddelbug Embossing Folder

And the finishing touch on the back a button I had hot glued and center filled in with a BoBunny crystal
and now you know what the B in BJ is for.
I'm sorry that this was a long one.  Thank You for stoping by.
