A Card for the Sugar Bowl

Good Morning Crafters, well keep your fingers crossed that today stay dry as Im taking my dear hubby out for dinner, as its his 70th Birthday on Tuesday and hes not really a party animal and I thought it would be a nice change and we are meeting up with a few friends as well.
Its been awhile since I used a Sugar Nellie image to create a card and this one has been lying around for about 6 weeks since I coloured it and I thought I would drag it out and get a card done, and I do hope you like the end result.
This one is titled "Floral Ladies 4" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out and layered her up onto a piece of pale craft card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with yet again a piece of the same pale craft card, and the papers are from Maya's "Coffee in the Arbour" I have used 3 peices and placed them across the card, then placed my mounted image towards the left and then placed three pearls in the top right hand corner ( I see one has slipped) and down the bottom I have put a sentiment that was die cut out of the same pale craft card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Another card for Sundays with Santa "Sparkles"

Good Morning Crafters, I like the end result this time its my own design, I cut three of the striplets from Sue Wilson and after cutting a mount of red card I used some large glitter and double sided sticky paper I have then placed my cut topper on top.
I then cut two larger mounts out of red and white and laid my mounted top in the center, I then used red pva pearl glue and created the red dots around the edge.
For the sentiment I cut two Peace diecuts in red and white and layered them up and placed it down the center of my card.

Good Morning Crafters, well this weeks theme for Sundays with Santa group on Facebook is "Holly" and I have used several of Sue Wilson dies the diecuts and the sentiment.
The base card is 8"x 6" and for the fist mount I have used dark green card, and then on top I have use half a page of embossed holly card at the top and at the bottom I have used a Justrite holly stamp and green embossing powder, these were layered up as shown in the photo.
I then used the holly dies and cut out several diecuts and layered them up down the page, and used red sparkle glue on the berries to make them stand out.
I also used the Peace Die and cut a white one and green one and layered them up and placed this at the top of the right hand side.

This weeks Card for Sundays with Santa - "Never seen Ink"

Good Morning Crafters, well I bought this stamp about 18 months ago and have been itching to use it and I got the opportunity to do so last week making up this card for this weeks "Never seen Ink" Challenge over on Sundays with Santa on Facebook, if any of you would like to join our little group please let me know it would be lovely to see more people on there.
Anyway I stamped the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, I then mounted it onto dark green card after cutting both out with one of my rounded edge Nestabilitie dies.
The base card is a 8"x 10" and for the first mount I have used the same dark green card as the mount and I then used a piece of white card and ran it through my embossing machine with a holly patterned folder, I then wrapped a piece of holly ribbon around the card and attached to the back of the first mount. I then place a diecut holly piece I found in my stash, which I also coloured with copic pens, and then placed my mounted image towards the right of my card.
