Yet another card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Happy Christmas Eve to you All, its my younger brothers birthday today and a dear friends as well, and do you know if my dad had still been alive he would have been 98 tomorrow and my nephew has a birthday on Boxing Day, it was always a busy time in my home what with Christmas presents and birthday presents it must have driven my mum spare getting them ready and hidden. I can remember looking in her wardrobe to see what she had bought me for Christmas but I carnt remember ever finding out what we were going to get, its memories like this that keeps our thoughts of them alive at this time of the year.
Anyway next year is going to be a very special one for me as my eldest grandson is expecting his first baby in March so I will become a Great Grandmother for the first time, just wish my mum had managed to see this happen but I lost her 3 years ago but Im sure she would have been thrilled to know that she was to become a Great, Great Grandmother if she had, she adored her grandchildren and great grandchildren and to have had yet another dynasty would have been a great joy for her.
Anyway back to todays card this has been created for this weeks Sugary Sunday "Kraft" Challenge and the Sugar Bowls Sketch, Ive used this gorgeous Saturated Canary stamp image and stamped it onto Kraft card then used my Karisma pencils to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.8 to cut her out, I then used the Decorative Labels 8 for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of brown card, the papers I have used a Honeypots "Kraft" digi papers, Ive used two patterns in different colours of the same pattern and layered it up as the Sugar Bowl Sketch requires. The used some of the left over papers and a set of punches then embossed them with a tool and layered them up to create the flower at the bottom on the left hand side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful card Shirley. I am also going to be a Great Grandmother next year. My granddaughters baby is due at the end of February.
Happy Christmas to you and your family, not forgetting little Missy. My Rosie used to love Christmas and always managed to find her own present from under the tree!
