Sugar Nellie DT Card & Sugar Bowl Challenge #118

Good morning my sugary friends.

As both my Sugar Nellie and Sugar Bowl Design Team duties clash today I decided to combine them together. I know you'll probably be preparing for Halloween, dark nights and cold autumn days, but if you're anything like me you're probably already starting to think about Christmas cards, and Christmas lists and so on. So to get you in the mood I thought I would make a Christmas card using the digi stamp 'Forest Friends' - isn't it cute. The theme for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl this month is Anything Goes, so grab your Sugar Nellie stamp and join the fun.

To see more Sugar Nellie creations made my lovely teamies why not drop by the Sugar Nellie blog or join our Facebook page (just search for the Official Sugar Nellie Group)


Here's What I Did
I used a shaped white card base and matted and layered die cut cardstock on top. I printed off the sweet Sugar Nellie image and die cut it into a circle, together with a scalloped circle mat. The image was coloured with Copic markers and touched up with pencils, to add a little interest I stamped snowflakes around the circle using distressing inks. To finish off I added a die cut snowflake and a wooden one together with some gems and a touch of glitter.

Here's everything I used:
