Sugarbowl Challenge No22- Kathy sketch

This is my first ever entry for the sugar bowl challenge and I have to say what a challenge.To be honest my head was all over the place after receiving sad news regarding close friends of mine. I thought a challenge card would be a good distraction but it only gave me a headache and I didn't really enjoy my wee craft night.But lets move on and talk about my card.

I knew it had to be a christmas card since I have only made two to date.Pretty poor as I had high hopes for this year but he ho it's a start.Next challenge was deciding which image to use. The Sugar Nellie stamps are all beautiful but I finally decided to use winter wonderland so thankyou to my buddy mel for giving me such a wonderful image.Then I read you had to include lace, my first thought was oh my god I have no lace can't do challenge.But then I remembered Susie gave me a wee stash of ribbon when we meet up the other week so challenge card was back on the cards again.Choosing the papers was the easy part, I just love them not because they are beautiful but because they were a bargain aswell on craftsuperstore website.

When I finally finished my card I didn't really know what I thought of it, was it good, was it bad who knew.What I did know was I needed some sleep and soon.So your comments would be grateful on this one.
