A blue christmas

Well, thought I'd ink up another of my new christmas manga stamps from sugar nellie and enter the sugar bowl challenge. I've made the card but am not sure if I'm still in time for the challenge.

They have a fab sketch and I had a look at my chrismtas papers (really need to get some more) and found this forever friends snowflake paper. I decided to keep to these colours and this is what I came up with. I don't think when you have such fab images you need loads of embelishments which suits me down to the ground as I am still a simple girl at heart, no matter how I try to embellish my cards I do still struggle.
I added stickl;es glitter to her fluffy bits but for some reason it doesn't show up too well. I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges too:-

Charisma cardz- christmas
Creative inspirations-christmas in september
Totally gorjuss-christmas

Wow I didn't realise there were so many christmas challenges.

Beautiful card Julye.
And yes, you are in time for the challenge at the Sugar Bowl.
Fab choice of colours, and I agree with you about the embellies. Sometimes I think the embellies detract from the image, this card is perfect just as it is and needs nothing else.
Love Elaine xx
