Sugar Bowl *19* Sketch by Marlene....

Good Morning!! This week at the Sugar Bowl we have a sketch by the wonderful Marlene and the option is brown and pink. Here is an inspiration picture to get you started:
I decided I wanted to make a winter card for this challenge! (I think because somewhere else the challenge was to make one using colors not usually associated with winter!) So I went with this adorable image ~ and I just rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left. Of course I had to throw in one of the big snowflakes ~ just love them!! I cut it out with my cuttlebug then ran some distress ink over it, glittered it up really nice and then went around the outside with some distress ink. I rather like the way it turned out!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week!! I can't believe it is Thursday already!! I vowed to get more cardmaking done once the girls were in school but that is not quite happening!! LOL But my parents are here and we have spent quite alot of time biking!! Today we got up to 12 miles and tomorrow we are trying for alittle further. But then I believe they will be headed home :(
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving me some love!! I truly appreciate all the lovely comments!! Thanks so much.

Chris said...

Hi Sweetie, hope you're well and it sounds like you're as fit as a fiddle with your 12 mile bike rides, I'd run away screaming from that :). Perhaps I should move closer to you, we can paint together and you can get me fit LOL!!! Your card is superb Kathy, such beautiful colouring and I love how you flipped the sketch. Perfect papers and those snowflakes are just gorgeous, that's one of my favourite dies too. Did you put crackle paint on the edges? It looks wonderful. Take care and speak soon. Hugs, Chris x
