This image is Candle, and when I saw it, I thougt it would work well for Christmas (besides, I need to get some more Christmas cards done). I pulled out some scraps of Christmas paper and went to town. I wanted something behind the scalloped circle, so I tried something different and cut a square, and rounded the corners. I really like how it looks. My ribbon embellishment is also something new for me. I took a long piece of ribbon and folded it over back and forth, making each "layer" a bit shorter than the last and sewed it together with some embroidery floss. I then took a button, put some ribbon through it, tied it in a knot and then sewed it to the ribbon "bow".
Here is a close up of the ribbon:
This card is for the following challenges:

This next card uses the Work at Home Image.
Usually I look for DP in the colors I am planning on doing my card in, but for this image I chose the DP first ~ I love the colors and glitter in this DP. I just had to give her a pink chair ~ makes me want one, unfortunately, it would not fit in with our decor, so I'll just have to live vicariously through my coloring ;) I knew I had a sentiment that would work great for this image, so I dug through my Studio G sets and found the "chat*im*text" stamp.
And surprise ~ this card is not for any challenges ~ a rarity for me.
Be sure to stop by the other Sugars' blogs to see what they have created.
Have a wonderful day :)
