Papertake Weekly - and 2 for the price of 1!

Happy Tuesday everyone, and welcome to another Papertake Weekly Challenge - my last as a Guest Designer. The past four weeks have fairly flown by, and I've had a brilliant time having a go at the fab challenges this blog has to offer and visiting some of your fabulous creations.

For my last challenge on the team we have this fab sketch by Dawny for you to follow.

I really enjoyed working with this, and I'm sure you will too. Don't forget to visit the main challenge blog to check out the other DT members' gorgeous samples, details of this week's prize, and to see if you are last week's lucky winner.

Here's my card for this week. Sadly I've been suffering from a bout of "winter-itis" in the photography department, as there was no real daylight to speak of yesterday ... but I did my best!

Main image: LotV "James Bear - Wrapped in Tinsel", coloured with Copics and Promarkers, and decorated with green Stickles glitter;
Sentiment: Elzybells;
Papers: Bo Bunny;
Supplies: large pearl brad and spacer from The Hobby House; lace from my stash;
Tools: Cuttlebug "Ice Crystal" die cut.

Pile It On #44 - Furry Holiday Cards (animal images)
Paper Sundaes #43 - Let It Snow!
Crafty Ann's #27 - Christmas in non-traditional colours
Top Tip Tuesday #9 - Use an Image / Sentiment

Now my post title refers to 2 for the price of 1 - that's because whilst I had the teddy stamp, pens and paper out, I made a second card which is very similar to the one above but a different layout.

The details are very similar to the one above, except that I used gold Stickles on teddy's tinsel, and also used some yummy Wild Orchid Craft lace, and pearls from the Hobby House.

I would like to enter the second one for the following challenges:

Fussy & Fancy #23 - Sketch
Spoon Full of Sugar #129 - Snow/Snowflakes
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #92 - Glitter

That's all for now - hope you can join in with the PTW challenge this week, and can't wait to see what you create.
