THE SUGAR BOWL CHALLENGE NO. 5 - CHRISTMAS


And my next card is for The Sugar Bowl Challenge No. 5 - "Christmas". So, I have chosen one of my very favourite Sugar Nellie stamps called "Snowflake", I just love this stamp! I have coloured her with a combination of WC Brushes, and Sukura Gel Pens, and for the added sparkle, some glitter on the Snowflakes, using a quickie glue pen, and crystal glitter. The image has been cut with an oval nesty, and layered on silver card cut with a scalloped oval nesty. The backing paper is from a Dovecraft 8x8 Paper Collection called "Winter Wonderland". I also added a small strip of glitter card for some more sparkle, and to finish the card off, a strip of pale blue ribbon, and some silver and blue gems, all from my craft stash. Hope you have enjoyed your visit, and many thanks for taking the time to stop by. Have a great day!
