Come play in the Sugar Bowl Challenge!!

Hi friends! It's Thursday and you know what that means? Well...it means it's almost the weekend...YAY!! It also means that we have another wonderful challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. And wait 'til you hear about this fortnight's challenge...and the fabby prizes!! That's right...one lucky winner, chosen at random, will win 6 "winter-themed" stamps from Sugar Nellie AND a set of Snowflake pendant dies from Spellbinders!!

So...heehee...I bet that got your attention, huh?? Here's how you can enter to win...

Simply make a card following this awesome sketch by Maria Therese...
and, if you like, you can also incorporate the optional theme of "Ribbons & Bows" into your creation! Remember, you must use at least one Sugar Nellie image...and let me tell you, there are so many fun images to choose from. I'm rather partial to the new Simply Sassy images by Sugar Nellie's new artist, Krista Smith. Here's a card that I just finished using one of the new Simply Sassy images named "Little Light of Mine." Isn't she too adorable?!!! I just love her big green eyes and cute little pug nose..and her great big feet!! (I wear size 11 shoes myself! LOL!!) Here are a couple of views from the sides...
And here's the inside of the card...


And here are a couple of "artsy" views:

And...here's the "recipe" for my little creation:

Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, and Real Red (Stampin' Up)
DPs & fabric: from Stampin' Up's "Candy Cane" Christmas Collection
Buttons: SU
"Rubies" & charm: my stash
Sentiments: Just Rite stamps
Nestabilities dies: Spellbinders
Copics: E21, 00, 000, 0000 (skin); R20 (cheeks); E19, 17, 15, 13, & 11 (hair); R02, 02, 00, 000 (Peach pinafore, candle, & socks); BG72, 11, 10, 000, 0000 (dress & slippers); G20, 24, 28 (eyes); E35, 53, 50, R32, 39 (bear); YR23, Y17, 11, 00, 000, 0000 (candle flame), and W1 & 00 (shadows).

So, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by...and do check out Sugar Nellie for the cutest and sweetest stamps in Scotland! I'll see you soon...but for now, I'm off to work! Have a beautiful day....

Gorgeous card and I can definitely see why you are partial to Simply Sassy - her feet are excellent and isn't the little teddy cute. Love the colours you've used and the sentiment is lovely. Jaqui x

Gorgeous card as are all your other cards.
I wondered if you could help me I'm trying to find the border punch and label ends you used in this card but have been unable to find. Is it possible for you to tell me there actual names to order.
Many thanks, Sharon
