The Sugar Bowl - Lillian's sketch

This card is for the Sugar Bowl challenge. Have you noticed how my Christmas cards are getting simpler and simpler LOL? I discovered how much they cost to post with all those flowers etc on! Not only that I seem to keep remembering more and more and have had a few commissions at the last minute so need them to be nice and simple! Having said that though I thought the image and the sketch were enough on their own on this one. The challenge is a gorgeous sketch by Lillian with the please include of "your favourite colour". My favourite colour is white so it was obviously very easy for me to include as the paper for my image is white! My favourite christmas colours are red and green so I've used these too!
I thought this gorgeous Leanne Ellis image suited Christmas too, perhaps she can be putting that star on the top of her tree! I have coloured her with copics and then added stickles to the star, flower in her hair and white lace on the bottom of her skirt. I have stamped a Whiff of Joy Christmas swirl that has stars around the edge of the circle with antique linen distress ink and then traced the swirls with stickles. The papers are K&Co and have been torn, sponged with brushed cordoruy distress ink and the edges stickled!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
