Poinsettia Girl...

Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies....

Today it's my turn to show a Sugar Nellie card...  and for this one I opted for a style that I don't normally go for.  Firstly - it's green...  (my second green one in two posts!)... but this is a gorgeous forest/mint type green...  And then I did an easel card which I don't often do..  and used a fabulous Leanne Ellis stamp..  don't you just love her Scandinavian type style??

This is Poinsettia Girl - available from Funky Kits HERE.  She was very easy to colour..  I used Copics and Promarkers again...  then created the background of her frame by using my Copic Colourless Blender all over the space.... then my C0 and C1 in patches....  then went over the whole thing again with the Blender Pen.  I thought it gave a good effect.  I added some glitter (of course) in the form of snowflakes...  then a tiny bit of Glossy Accents on the poinsettia to make it stand out.  The bigger snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches - and again, are covered with glitter - with a gem in the centre of each.  Oooh and I used some fabulous LOTV paper from one of their new Christmas pads - it was the perfect green to match this image!

As it's an easel card, I thought I'd give you a side view!  The Merry Christmas stamp is from Poppy Stamps - and I've used it a lot lately!

I do hope you like this card.... I was really happy with how it turned out.... you know when something just goes together well??

Now.... it's going to be an exciting weekend at Sugar Nellie... we're teaming up with Kit and Clowder for their 4000 followers party...  there are lots of events, some giveaways... and lots of fun... so checkout the Facebook page soon!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting...
