Writing to Santa, Sugar Bowl Challenge 24

I am so glad that today was Friday. I went back to school yesterday and I have been really tired trying to get back in the swing of things. The one good thing was that I got some time during lunch to finish up my Sugar Bowl Challenge card. I started it yesterday but didn't think I would get to finish it until tomorrow. This is one of the new Christmas stamps that I just adore. I don't tend to buy the boy images as much as the girls but I loved this image and had to have it.

This week the Sugar Bowl Challenge is sketch 24 by Marlene. You also have to have some sort of zigzag on the card. I thought that would be a problem but it turns out that I had some SU rick rack ribbon. It was light green so I pulled out my Copics and colored it red and to brighten it up put red Stickles on it. I made something that reminded me of the corsages you see around the holidays in mini form. I tried to color the hat and scarf to match the plaid paper back round. Just a little glitter to add a little sparkle without him having bling.

Stamps: Sugar Nellie
Paper: SU Real Red. Night of Navy, Papertrey White, CTMH Textured White, and DP Bo Bunny and Basic Grey
Inks: Copics
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Paper Shaper Swirl Punch, MS Branch Punch, SU Glitter, Stickles, SU Rick Rack Ribbon, CTMH Ribbon, Kaiser Pearls, Queen & Co Pearls, Pearl Pins Unknown

I hope you liked my interpretation of the Sugar Bowl Sketch this week. Thank you stopping by. I would love to know what you think of my card.

Have a wonderful weekend,
