Christmas Sugar Bowl

I've managed to make a few cards tonight, some are for DT work that I can't show just now but I also made a card for The Sugar Bowl challenge. This is one of the challenges that I really don't like to miss as they always have a fab sketch.
The please include option this time is to use your favourite colour. I don't really have one favourite colour so I used two of my faves, pink and blue. I added a few embellishments to the sketch and changed the circle for a oval to fit the piece of paper my image was stamped on, but apart from that, I followed the sketch as it was.

I took the photo inside just a minute ago so the colours don't look like they do IRL. They are really much softer and the pink doesn't look orange like it does here but never mind, you will just have to take my word for it.
I love this image, isn't she just the sweetest? I coloured her with the usual Copics, well tried to colour her with a wonky hand lol.
The pink paper is the reverse of what I think is a Basic Grey sheet but I'm not 100% sure, and the blue snowflake paper is by Sandylion, it is a lovely thick embossed paper and it is really nice when you see the whole sheet together but I was £1.49 for one sheet!! OK it was a 12"x12" sheet but still I think that's a bit expensive for one piece of paper. That's why I only used a little bit of it lol. The pink piece under my image is just plain pink card which I stamped with the Stamps Happen Christmas Snowflake stamp from
I just checked out the Janlynn website tonight and wow they have loads of new holiday stamps. I want so much of them!
Back to the card, the flowers are a mix from my stash and Tabby Crafts, the snowflake charm was from my local craft shop and other little bits from my stash.

I think I will have an early night tonight because I will be super busy tomorrow at the kids school. I have to set up Santa's Grotto as he is coming on Tuesday and Wednesday and then the fayre and open day on Thursday and Friday so busy busy week for me. In between all that I have to try make another 50 or so cards for Thursday and Friday! Somehow I just don't think that will happen lol.

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back in the morning with my DT card for Cute Daisy May and the winner of my CDM blog hop candy.
