The Sugar Bowl Challenge #9

This week's Sugar Bowl Challenge is a toughie...we're to make a card for the most difficult of species...MEN! I struggled with this, as I don't have many Sugar Nellie stamps, and most of the ones I do have are a bit girlie...so I've used this snowMAN to make a Christmas card for a man. The papers ('Festive Frost' by My Mind's Eye) are kind of masculine feeling, in rich browns and teal, with a lot of distressing, and I've kept the layout really simple, with no 'frilly bits', just a couple of die-cut snowflakes for embellishment.


I'm still managing to make a Christmas card a week...this is last weeks...didn't manage to get it finished while it was still light enough to photograph yesterday.
