Bah Humbug/Sugar Nellie.

Here is this week's Christmas Card.  Again it is for the Bah Humbug Challenge which this week is 'Vellum'.  Now at first I thought, oh 'eck!  but then I remembered my old trusty Lidl Paper Pack.  Each Christmas paper has got a matching vellum (which I very rarely use) so out it came.  My pack is looking very tatty and thin now as most of the papers have gone, just a few scraps of each left.  I hope they bring out another pack this year.

The squares on my card are using the paper and I have made the ribbon and punched the snowflakes out of the vellum with a Martha Stewart punch.  The image is a Sugar Nellie 'Sledging' and I have coloured it with Promarkers.  I am also entering this card into this weeks All Things Sugar Nellie on PaperCraft Planet. This I have embossed the background with the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder and finally added my usual glamour dust and snow from BMs and added a couple of clear gems.  I have used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Amazing colours on this - how effective & different. I'm seeing these images in a new light through your use of them - hadn't really investigated Mary Hall too much.
