Sketch Saturday #21




Morning everyone,

Saturday again and you all know what that means, Sketch Saturday have a brand new challenge for you. Jo has produced another fabulous sketch, I can't stress enough how amazed I am every week by the wonderful skethes Jo comes up with, they are a real joy to work with.

Thanks to everyone who took part last week, we had another fabulous response and I'm sure you will all be keen to join in the fun again this week.

Hop over to the blog and look at all the stunning creations from the DT and then do another hop to their individual blogs to see how there card were made....stop by and show them some love!

I didn't have the right 'red' for the snowman to match these gorgeous papers so I used poppy and overlayed it with terracota and voila! a perfect match, I have also popped the scarf on 3d pads to give it a bit of dimension. All the papers, including the fabulous background paper is from Charmed cards and crafts

Here are the details of my card
  • Image: Snow Cozy by Sugar Nellie
  • Papers: Imaginisce and Carol Wilson
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Flower and brad from stash

Hope you have a super day, thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave
