Sugar Bowl sketch

Quick post today....hubby just left for an entire week Up North & I have GOBS to do!! But I wanted to share this card I just finished.....



I *heart* Fluffles & just yesterday dug out all my Xmas stamps with the devious little furball. I colored him with Prismas.....& used the sketch from this week's Sugar Bowl challenge. The papers are SU's Riding Hood Red (yes, again!!) & Basic Grey's Figgy. The option for the challenge was to use zig zags somewhere on your card.....so I used my Martha Stewart Zig Zag border punch. Added lots of glitter.....some clear embossing on the ornaments....& made my own Dew Drops since I didn't have the right color. When I need to customize....I use the clear baubles from Michael's .....HUGE bag for a couple of bucks.....punch CS with my 1/4" hole punch....& glue it on. In this case I used Stickles to glue them for some added sparkle!





Hopefully you can see all the sparkle & shiny ornaments in this picture.....but it's that dreaded red color again....we just don't get along!!




My sparkly faux Dew Drops.....


OK, I'm off to bake some banana bread before the boys get home .....& I have GOT to take down my Halloween stuff, lol!!! I always figure it's fall-ish.....& it IS still fall, right?? But my kids see Christmas lights & decorations in our neighborhood, & think we are way behind. I may as well leave all my Xmas stuff up next year....that way I will be ahead :)

Very cute card Michelle, what a great idea with the faux dew drops. I'm going to have to check these out when I get to Mike's, I never have the right color either- LOL! Thanks for the great ideas, I just love your cards.
