LotV Sketch


Before my holiday I ordered a few new LotV stamps, but when they arrived ... quelle horreur ... I found I didn't have enough mounting foam to mount them all - eek! So having got back this week I just had to sort that out as a matter of priority, so at last I can start inking up the little cuties that were sitting in my drawer looking forlorn.

I also paid a visit to a nearby craft shop last Friday and was very taken with the new Bo Bunny Christmas papers ... I don't normally go in much for bright colours, but these really appealed to me and I really love this colour combo.

The net result of all this is my card for this week's LotV Challenge #65


I have followed this week's sketch .... I was a bit puzzled initially as to how I could incorporate the larger circles, but then I hit on the idea of using one of the larger snowflake dies from the Shapeabilities "Make A Flake 2" set.

Recipe:
Main image: LotV "Bringing Gifts", coloured with Promarkers, and decorated with glamour dust and Star Dust stickles;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards;
Papers: Bo Bunny;
Supplies: pearls from the hobby House;
Tools: Shapeabilities "Make a Flake 2" (large white snowflakes); Martha Stewart "Arctic Snowflake" punch; Cuttlebug "Snowflake 2" die.

Now for once I have made a card which is only for ONE challenge - not like me at all lol!

Bye for now!
