Simple adorable sugar nellie

I was recently able to get 3 of the new simply adorable digital images from sugar nellie. I really like how simple and sweet and easy they are to color and add to a card.  On the sugar bowl we are following a sketch this week.  My image is joy sitting and she avialable as a digital image from funky kits.  I colored her up with copics and then paired her up with papers from the fine and dandy line from in my minds eye.  I thought the flowers and crystals added a nice soft touch to go with this sweet little girl.
