Sugar Bowl 37 - Marlene's Sketch

Good morning and welcome to another Sugar Bowl Challenge!

What was I thinking ??? A Christmas Card in June!!!

Well
, I was looking around my vast collection of Sugar Nellie stamps and this image just kind of jumped out at me! And I thought 'Why not?' ..... it fits with the sketch and a girl can never make too many Christmas cards eh???So I coloured the image with prisma pencils ....though I think I will go back and add a little more shading and contrast onto her coat. Not enough depth me thinks!The papers are all MME 'So Sophie' collection and I used my Tim Holtz Scallop Edge die to create the border. I found the snowflakes in my Christmas box..all yummy and glittery and sparkly. I left a little room on the bottom right corner for a sentiment. I am really short on Christmas sentiment...so I will be on the look out for some in the near future.

I just love the little mini sprays from Quixotic Paperie.....this one looks very Christmassy don't you think? And it totally matches the pattern on the bottom layer of patterned paper...which of course I have totally covered up!

Anyway, I hope you have time to join in with this fabulous challenge! Marlene has chosen the extra theme of 'Girly'......which I think is a pretty easy one for most of us!

And one very lucky winner will receive 6 fabulous Sugar Nellie stamps AND a set of nestabilities! WOW!! So make sure you drop by the Sugar Bowl and take a look at the other sweeties work....totally inspirational and then have a go yourself!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a super day! It is hubbies Birthday today and we bought him a Chimenea for the garden. So I think we might be out tonight sitting by the patio while he does manly stuff like chop wood and make fire!
