Time for a Sugar Bowl entry!

Well, Sunday evening and almost time for another week to start. We have been pretty slow at work so it has given me a little reprieve from being so busy and I have taken advantage of it and had a chance to make another card today. This image is from the last Sugar Nellie release and this is my second Christmas card of the season.


I have added a ton of glamour dust but unfortunately I just can't capture it well in the photo but it is on all of the hats and the stockings, very pretty irl. The poinsettia in the corner is by prima from a few years ago and the acrylic one is from Michaels. I am entering this into the Sugar Bowl challenge which is a sketch which was a lot of fun to use, not too many layers and the option of blue which I was able to squeeze a smidgen in! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week!

Oh Amanda, this is totally adorable! Love that image and colored perfectly of course :) Very pretty papers too and the piece of lace adds so much to this card.

Karin said...

What a cute image colored so perfectly too...Did you draw that black outline yourself? Hmmm...Did you keep the Nestie in place and trace around the inside??? Do tell because I LOVE!

Kerry said...

Gorgeous Amanda...love the colours and the hanging stockings. The flower and lace work really well and tracing around the Nestie really sets off the image :-D xx

The perfect image for you with the little kitty! Your coloring rocks and I love the black outline....so how did you do it?

Amanda this truly has to be the most perfect card !!! LOVE that darling image & your coloring is over the top !!! I must ask the same question Patty Sue 2 did of how DID you make the outline around that die? It sets it off wonderfully & is such a great contrast !!! I NEED to know so I can do it too. I want to be like you ... I also need to go buy that adorable image as my daughter LOVES cats & this would make the greatest Christmas card for her. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent with us.
