Pretty in Bows

I have to tell you, the last month has been a whirlwind and I think I am going to welcome the slow routine-ness of January.  I really haven't accomplished a lot but have been quite busy with those end of the year appointments like the optometrist, dentist, etc. and I am glad they are over, especially the dentist.
We have a new challenge at The Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog and as always, the theme is Anything Goes.  To enter the challenge, you have to follow three simple rules:   You must follow the challenge theme,  your entry must include a Sugar Nellie image and finally, you  must link your project to The Sugar Bowl.  The first place winner will receive a prize of 4 SN digis with the second prize of 2 digis.
There is also a design team call at The Sugar Bowl and you still have time to enter.  It's a fab group and I love those images, both rubber and digi.

 Now, on to some details about the card.  I chose to use one of the rubber All Dressed Up images and this little gal is called Pretty in Bows and I think she is too.  Yellow is not a colour I normally use but I found these pretty Authentique papers and like the softer, more muted tones.  Silly thing though of course now that the card is together, the photo taken and watermarked, I see I have the music paper upside down.  Sheesh...hahhaha... I do this stuff a lot and why is it that you don't ever see it until it is posted?  At least I don't.  Not a big deal I guess but one of those picky little things that are a minor annoyance.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Merry Christmas, a Joyful Holiday and I wish you the very best for 2015.
