Three Clovers Designs Thursday challenge

Happy Friday Eve everyone! And it's especially nice this week, cause I am on vacation next week! NINE glorious days off in a row (including weekends of course)! I can NOT wait to turn off my alarm Friday morning when I get up! LOL! Thursday also means a new challenge from Kerry at Three Clovers Designs. This week, she is requesting a Christmas card that has no red or green. I used this adorable digi image by CC Designs. Isn't she cute??? She's colored with Copic markers and then cut out with oval Nestabilities. See that flower? I made it myself with the Blossom Nestabilities. What do you think? I think I need a lot of practice, but I also think it's not too awful bad considering it's my first attempt. :) I didn't notice until now that the snowflake charm was twisted in the pic. Dang!!!

The snowflakes and fronds are from Martha Stewart punches and the paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. I also used some Stickles on her wings and hat. The pink pearls are by Kaiser.
That's it for today. Please be sure and visit Three Clovers Designs to check out all the other fabulous projects from the rest of the team. And we'd love it if you would join in the fun and create your own card and link it to Kerry! Thanks so much for visiting me today, and please pop by tomorrow. I've got a bit of really exciting news to share with you, but can't reveal it til then!!! HUGS!
OOPS! Almost forgot to say this card fits into Danni's Flutter by Wednesday challenge!

Oh Sharon,
What a pretty card. Love the paper - colours and image! You have coloured her beautifully. Those snowflakes are so very dainty! I went to the site to find the bloom flower - you have done it wonderfully - but can't find it! Can you tell me what catagory to look in?
Many big thanks and hugs - Candy

Sharon, that flower caught my eye first thing and I wondered where I could get some that pretty. Then you said you made it with Nestabilities. I'm so excited, that means I could do it too. I'll have to get that one for sure. Your card is just beautiful.

My hat is off to you Kiddo! I don't think I could do a Christmas card without those colors. You did an awesome job! And let me tell you, even before I started reading your blog, I noticed that flower and thought "that is a gorgeous flower!". I think it is outstanding. Why do you think you need to practice when it is perfection??? Best, Curt

I am speechless, Sharon....yes, speechless!!!! My mouth is just hanging open and I really can't think of anything to say. So, out of this speechless state, I am going to grab two words to describe how much I love this card (bear in mind, I am speechless, okay?)...the word is "ADORABLY SWEET!"
