Christmas in July ~ Sugar Nellie Hope

Hello again,
For my second post today it's 'Hope' by Sugar Nellie.
I saw on a blog recently someone used the 'Connie' image for a christmas card and it looked gorgeous, so I thought I'd have a go.
I coloured Hope in copics and I used Basic Grey Christmas papers, the doily is from Poppy's Cabin, poinsettias, holly & Ivy are from Michaels (Thanks again to my dear daughter)The ribbon is Green Taffeta from The Ribbon Girl, the gold filigree corner from Wild orchid crafts and Kort & Godt pearls from Joanna Sheen.
and here she is...


CHALLENGES;
1) Paper Sundaes Challenge #78 ~ Christmas in July
2) Stamp Something challenge ~ Something embellished

4) Crafty Catz Weeekly Challenge #92 ~ No pink or Blue allowed
