Late night crafting

I was having trouble sleeping last night so after laying awake for 30 minutes, I decided to get up and make a cuppa. While the kettle was boiling, thought I would do a quick tidy of my craft room, as its next to the kitchen. I got sidetracked, as you do when you go into a craft room and began to make a card for an image that had been coloured.

I broke into a new paper stack from DCWV for this one (last years) had to have it but didn't use it - does that sound familiar? The papers just matched the blue on the image. I fiddled for ages as the snowflake was too big and kept covering Charlie's cute lil' face. The starry shiny paper is from stash, bought when I first started making cards. The sentiment is from an SU! kit.
I used the sketch from A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge this week and am going to enter it into Susie's Sassy Challenge.

Even managed to decorate the inside of the card again.....
