The Sugar Bowl - A Christmas Card

I decided to treat myself and this is what I brought - isn't she so beautiful? I decided to use her to make a contempory christmas card for the sugar bowl challenge, keeping it clean and simple at the sametime. I decided to paper pierce her as it is a technique I have not done for a while and this image looked brilliant to do it with and I was not proved wrong at all! I watercoloured her first and then added the silver highlights to the coat and then added the paper piercing. I finished the image off by adding glitz to the muff which was undercoloured in silver. The image and border (including the 2nd panel) were cut using my nesties. I then doodled a wavy border around all the papers in silver pen. I then added a ribbon from stash and 6 gems. I hope that you like it.
