The Sugar Bowl Challenge # 5

It's challenge 5 over on The Sugar Bowl and they want to see your 'Christmas' creations. The rules are, you must use at least one 'Sugar Nellie' item on your work. Well I'm happy for anything to help keep me to my one xmas card a week resolution.

Used SN 'Hug in a Mug' and coloured with copics with a little sakura stardust clear waterbrushed on to the white areas and a little sakura gold metallic. Cut image with Fiskars shapecutter and chalked and inked the edges with red and green. I cut eight scalloped ovals in three diffeent sizes with the nesties using red and green glitter card and layed out into a kind of frame for the image to be mounted on. The red background and gold strip across the card are embossed foiled card from Kanban. Added green ribbon with a knot along the gold strip. The circle sentiment is from Fred, She Said, mounted on to a green glitter card scalloped circle, then added a paper poinsettia from stash.

Wasn't expecting any time to craft today as two of the girls have come to visit, but they've all gone to the cinema this afternoon, so while Steve's been flicking between cricket and rugby on the TV, I got on with some cards.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend xxx
