Sugar Bowl # 49...Snowflakes

Hi sweet friends...can you believe it's time again for another Sugar Bowl Challenge?!! Where does the time go?? I have no idea...except I do know that, wherever it goes, I've noticed that it goes much faster the older I get! LOL!

So...for this fortnight's challenge over at the Sugar Bowl, we have another sketch from the very talented Maria Therese. Oh...and we have to use at least one snowflake! Well, since I had just gotten some wonderful Bo Bunny DP from the Midnight Frost Collection, and since I have two MS punches (snowflake & snowflake border) and some Spellbinders "snowflake" dies, I knew I would have no trouble at all coming up with something fun for you all. The biggest challenge for me was deciding which of my many Sugar Nellie stamps to ink up! Since I used my very, VERY fave Simply Sassy images for my last two Sugar Bowl Challenges, I decided to pull out this sweet little Sugar Nellie 2009 image called "Santa's Helper"...and if you scroll down, you'll see what I came up with....

Here's the sketch from Maria Therese...


And my card...


A couple of "artsy" shots...



A side view...


A view of the inside...


Here's the rest of my card recipe:
Cardstock: Night of Navy (SU) and white
Ribbon, charm, & rhinestone embellies: my stash
Lots and lots of Stardust Stickles
And here are the Copics I used...


Ohhhh...I almost forgot...the prize for one lucky challenge participant (chosen at random) is not to be believed!!! Are you ready for this?

LOTV Round Sentiment Stamps
AND...
A set of Round Nestabilities
AND...
SIX Sugar Nellie Stamps!!!

YIKES, huh?! Sooooo...what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog and take a look at the gorgeous creations my fellow DT Sweeties have come up with for inspiration...and then pull out your craft supplies and join in the fun!!

Thanks so much for stopping by....have a sweet week! I'll see you soon.

Pat, this is just too adorable. Lovely DP's from Bo Bunny--love the colour combo. Fabulous colouring. Love those huge snowflakes in the inside. Are they really that huge? What size is your card? I'm trying to get an idea here...LOL.
