Papertake Weekly #46 & Creative Card Crew & A Spoonfull of Sugar #117

Hi girls, the start of another week already - time is just flying in. It's good of you to call in here. Hope fully your effort will not be unrewarded. Tha family are here and things are chaos. Two extra adults, 2 extra teenagers and 3 extra dogs. Oh the fun in our house.
I made this card with three challenges in mind. Papertake Weekly gave us a fabulous sketch, Creative Card Crew wanted "Sparkle and Shine" and A Spoonfull of Sugar asked for "Christmas in August". The image is Lili of the Valley's "Skating Along" coloured with my trusty Copics. The wee dog looked a bit like our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel so I coloured it accordingly. I used a pearlised paper that I put through my Sizzix in a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and used plain card as a mount. The corners are punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
The embellishments are cut using a Sissix poinsettia die and the pearls, ribbon and sentiment are all from my stash.
I do hope you like this card enough to take the opportunity to leave me a comment telling me what you think. I do so love reading what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to call in and I hope you have a great day. Stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
