Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 94

At long last I'm back with a card - I know, don't all faint at once!
And what better card to show than one for the new Sugar Bowl challenge :)

The sketch for this challenge has been provided by the lovely Sweetie Jenny, with an optional theme of "wet, wet, wet". Hmmm so which image to use for this one? Well I had a good rummage through my rubber box and decided on one that not only had snow but a brolly too!

WARNING:
Not for the faint hearted...the following card may offend the CAS style of crafters...more embellies than you can shake a stick at! In my defence, I would've happily stepped away from the card 3 embellies earlier but I was trying to follow the sketch to the best of my ability.


Ta-da!! My first (and at the rate I'm going,only) Christmas card.
I love this stamp! How cute are these two Snow Buddies?
As always, the image is coloured with a mix of DI re-inkers and markers.
The umbrella has been paper pieced...though my poor photography doesn't show the dimension on the brolly. The papers are some really old ones from Dream Street, and then there's a whole snow storm of glamour dusted die cut snowflakes and a flower tucked in there too.



As always, there is a prize chosen at random for one lucky winner, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries.
Please pop on over to the Sugar Bowl to see the fab cards off my Sweetie sisters.

Thanks for looking.
Love

  5. I do like the way you managed to blend those top flakes into the background by using the patterned paper & your umbrella is definitely not flat. I can imagine it was outside your comfort zone - not sure what I'd have done with that particular sketch.
    Take care of yourself.

  34. Hi Elaine, your card is gorgeous, everything on it looks great. The papers are probably the cutest I have seen for ages, the colours of your immages and the work you have put into them is so soft and delicate. Love the paper piecing on the brolly and the sparkly snow flakes. Have a good weekend....Trish.
