Fifi Goes Shopping - Sugar Nellie - Passion for Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge

This week at Passion for Promarkers we are launching our very special Mega Christmas challenge which runs for a whole month and ends on January 1st 2013.   Both design teams  are having a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs.
Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is a nice easy one “include the word HAPPY in your sentiment”, so basically we want to see your creations for any type of occasion that include the word “happy”, i.e. happy Christmas, happy birthday, happy anniversary etc.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.

So for this challenge I have used a new stamp from a new source to me Sugar Nellie. I have often admired cards made with their images and finally got around to buying a few:)  This is 'Fifi goes shopping' and I think she is just too cute for words.

She is cut with a SB labels 28 die with a faux nestie behind her. I added Joy Craft corners and a Cottage Cutz Christmas doily. The sentiment is from LOTV with a SB lacy circle behind it. Backing paper is from Kanban and all the gold card used is matt gold mirror board. Flowers from WOC and leaves, berry sprays and ribbon are from my stash.

She is coloured of course with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I added distress ink and loads of white glitter.

I stole an idea from Nic and added some Snowtex to the roses :) I also added gold Glamour Dust to the leaves.
The inside does match the front of the card

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!
Letraset are generously offering 3 x Season’s Gift Sets – so that means 3 winners!

Both design teams will be sharing some inspiration with you but as it such a long challenge we will be posting the inspiration from Team 2 today and then in two week’s time we will be posting inspiration from Team 1.  Unfortunately during the Mega Christmas challenge we will not be choosing a top 5 passionista but this will re-commence for the first challenge in 2013.

I am entering the following challenges:-
