SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks--Day 2

     Day # 2 of our SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks.  This set is called "Hug-a-Bull".  When I was first asked to join the SP DT this was one of the images I was given a sneak peek of and I just loved it.  I thought it was fun and unique and I still don't think I have ever seen another bull fighter image.  The set comes with several difference sentiments packed with humor.


     For this card I used some papers that I thought carried through the Spanish feel and the colors of the bullfighters.  I apologize for the bad photo.  Red is really hard to capture in it's true color and it seems to be glaring on my card.  For the bottom panel I ran the paper through a striped embossing folder so it has some great texture.


     Make sure you hop around to all the DT and our special guest designer, Lisa Lara, and leave some love cause one lucky hopper will win the "Hug-a-Bull" set AND one SUPER lucky person will win the whole release!  All the winners will be announced during the online release party chat on the SugarPea Designs Facebook page on Thursday, March 6 between 8:00---9:00 p.m. EST.
     The release will launch in the SugarPea Designs online shoppe immediately following the release party.
     Have fun hopping!

The cutest and bravest little "torero" (Spanish for bullfighter) that I've ever seen, Tracy! The red looks perfect, girl. You have colored the image beautifully. Great card!

Hugs,
Kathya

He's brilliant!! You always grasp my attention with your coloring, but you really are the best at selecting just the perfect sentiments!!!
You really captured the bull fighter colors and the lace design is spot on!
Also, thank you for the concern on my fingers...my claws are mending nicely...LOL!!!

WOW...secondly...can't stop looking at the colored creasing you did on the shorts and wavy blanket thingy the matador uses. AWESOME!!

Hi Tracy!
Isn't taking pictures of red or white on cards so challenging! I understand that! Your photo looks terrific and I love the Spanish feel to your card-especially the white/black DSP peeking out in a scallop below the main image. Love that accent!
