Merry and Bright, Sugarbowl 22
Good Morning. Thanks for stopping by my blog and looking at my cards. I hope you like what I have created.
I made this card for Kathy's Sugar Bowl sketch challenge #22. I received my stamps yesterday from winning the challenge a couple weeks ago and wanted to use one on this challenge. I kept looking at them and decided on Demure. She is so darn cute! I always saw her as a summer stamp but then I thought if I colored her in red & green she would make a cute XMAS stamp so that's what I did. I have some issues coloring and blending reds for some reason. The sleeves look alot more shaded in real life.
I really wanted to color the lace red but didn't dare since I didn't have much left. If it got messed up I wouldn't have enough to finish the card today. I have a busy weekend so I really wanted to finish this and get it posted.
If you like my card please let me know. I would love to know what you think.
