The Sugar Bowl and First Birthday FREEBIE day 5

Hiya folks!

It's a lovely day here in NE Scotland (for a change) might get that washing out! LOL Isn't it amazing how a bit of sun can brighten up the way we feel?

My card for today is also full of cheer - it's another Christmas Card! This is my entry into The Sugar Bowl Challenge, who have a yummy sketch to follow, and an added (optional) requirement of 'Something Old, Something New'. Here is the sketch:

My 'something old' is the cardstock, some white linen-effect card I have had for a couple of years. It was part of a set of stuff I bought from Create & Craft. The 'something new' bit is the image itself. I bought this from Funky Kits a couple of weeks ago, and have only just got round to inking it up! (me bad!)

My dp's are from various places, all digital and manipulated by me to get the right shades for this project. Talking of shades, this is meant to be Aqua in colour to enter the challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week. Never quite sure of the difference between aqua and turquoise, but I think it's OK though.

I have added liberal amounts of glitter in the shape of some stickles in two colours. I bought these from my local craft store, which happens to be Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin (home of Sugar Nellie Stamps) - dead handy huh?! This fits the new challenge this week at MAWTT which is 'glitter'

This lovely little Christmas Manga stamp has been coloured with my usual watercolour pencils. I have cut round the image and raised her up on foam pads, along with the circle shape behind her, and the star shape behind that. You know me - I love my layers! I have also added some stickles to her hair and the baubles. Last addition was some gems in the corners - almost a perfect match, but a little too green I think. Whatever! It's the closest colour I had to match with.

OK, off to take advantage of the sun now then - washing out, then garden sorting I think, see you later folks!
