Sugarbowl Christmas

Over at the Sugarbowl Challenge this week there's one of Tiet's wonderful layered sketches......which I can't resist........with the added twist of using punches........so another christmas card for the box.
Watercoloured the image for a change.........the papers are all Blonde Moments which were a sale bargain last year and then wasn't sure that I liked them...........but thought they were perfect for this.........Shimelle's class has certainly got me looking at all my neglected stash in a new light!!!!
Used distress inks on the background.....punched the stars and Stickled them all........a bit of fun flock on her hat and scarf......finished off with a SU sentiment.
And the prize this week is all 6 new Manga stamps.......wouldn't I love those!!

This is fabulous Jacky, love all the layers, you've made them look great, I ducked out of this challenge, didn't think I could get the layers to co-ordinate, but you have done a fab job.
Happy crafting
