Sugar Nellie

Hi guys
I have been busy trying to perfect my card,s I go around all your blogs and see all your cards and they are always stunning so perfectly placed,and such beautiful detail on them too.
So I spent all day yesterday trying to get this sugar nellie image, digi image as detailed as I could,getting the shading,it a bit of a thing for me as love to see that on cards.
I used the great sketch again from,friday sketches just love,the sketches they come up with,so here she is I have used my pencils,papers are Anna Griffin,and SU,the link to the SU papers are on my side bar.
I also played with some ribbon,and made a rose well kind of,then I added some lace underneath,to finish it off love to know what you think.

I used,several different,pencils,as I only have a few of the prisma's so I used,some of my other water pencils,and blended several blues,to try and create the shade for the jeans,and the shirt.
Before I go I just want to thank you all so much for your continuing support with my GD post over at the craft barn,I really appreciate that and so thankfull that I am getting some comments over there. I was,dreading poping over and seeing nothing.  So bless you to you all.
