Christmas in July...

Good Morning...

Today's card is my DT inspiration for The Sugar Bowl.

The new challenge at 
is Anything Goes (with a Sugar Nellie Image). 

The prize for the lucky winner is four Sugar Nellie Digital Images, and there is a second prize winner of two Sugar Nellie Digital Images from 
I have been a tad shaken by the number of Christmas cards some of my lovely bloggin' friends are creating and as there are only 147 days to go I thought I had better make a start.  

I decided to make my card with the gorgeous Sugar Nellie Digi - Wish Upon A Star.

I coloured her with Copics and used some pearlescent card to create layers.  

I used some twine, a button and some rusty bells (love those! they are from Live and Love Crafts).

Finally, I added some sentiments from Lili of The Valley and a dusting of Frantage.

Here we are then, - it's the most wonderful time of the year... (I do mean that you know)!

So pretty and such delicate colours. I tend to be a bit OTT with frantage, your sprinling is perfect

She is such a sweetie Sue and a great start to the Christmas card pile. Those bells really are pretty too and I love the cheesecloth peeping out from behind the mats xx

Ha ha, well that's one more Christmas card than I have made! It's an absolute beauty though and your elegant design shows off the delightful image so perfectly. The soft pastels are just so pretty...I like the non-traditional colours for Christmas cards :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
