my mojo has left with the carbs!

Good morning all! I hope you are fit and well and ready for another day? I'm feeling much better - I think my system must be free from caffeine - and its doing good - the only problem is, I think my mojo has upped and left! You'll see what I mean with this card - it just isn't right - I love the image but I'm afraid I've not used it so well as was my intention!

I think maybe its just too fussy - smething simpler would have suited the image - but nevermind - here it is!

I've followed the sketch from sketch and stash 96 - my stash is the backing paper - its been in my draw for donkeys years! Although this card is the first use I've had for my embossability folder.

Anyway, I should like to enter this card into the following challenges:
craftybloggersnetwork: Purple
DP2mosdigitalchallenge: anything goes with Mo
Winterwonderlandchristmasblogchallenge: Christmas pets
pattiescreationschallenge: Embossing
CHNCcraftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge: For a child
christmascardchallenges: stars

Before I go I just wanted to share a photo of my girls in their new dance outfits - they've just started to do zumba/freestyle and these are their outfits!

don't they look cute?

Have a fabulous day - I'm making Jam today - from the blackcurrants from the garden. Yummy!

Big hugs and thanks for any comments you may leave! I really do appreciate you taking the time!
