Less is more

Or to be truthful, one of those days when no matter how big your stash is you just cant find that perfect something that you couldnt even describe if your life depended on it!!
I made this for the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge, pink & green and based it very loosely on a sketch from Poetic Artistry. The sugar nellie stamp has such a genteel feel to her I wanted to use more of a vintage look so went with K&Co paper, rose carmine & chromium green opaque f&c watercolur pencils. All was going well until I started to look for those elusive embellies to finish it off and nothing is working. So time to put her in the box with the other cards that are waiting for me to find that perfect embellie or 2.
