MAWTT Challenge 73 - Sketch - Christmas card

Happy Thursday to you, I hope things are going well

Today over at MAWTT, the creative Heidi is hosting with a sketch and Christmas theme, so here's a chance to add another card to your collection. Honestly it won't be long before we have to start writing them all and posting them out.



The sponsor this week is Little Claire's and we were each given a stamped image to wotk with. This is a real cute one and with Heidi's sketch I have kept it fairly clean this time. I painted the image using DIs and a little silver alcohol ink. The DP and matching vellum paper were a freebie from a magazine last year - I honestly don't know which one. I have edged with DI and stardust stickles. The snowflakes were cut on photograph paper on the cricut and glamour dust added to the top layer & a green gem sticker added to the middle.

A simple card, but I really like the end product.

Challenges to have fun with -
2 Sisters - Christmas
Craft Your Days Away - Christmas Trees
Mark's Finest papers - Snowflakes
Secret Crafter - Sparkle and Shine
Sweet Stampin - Snowflakes
Elephantastic - Christmas theme
Cupcake Inspiratins - Christmasy
