A wintery sketch challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog!!

Hello, its time for a new challenge over at Rainbow Lady's challenge blog, what a fantastic response to last weeks challenge! Wow we couldn't believe how many gorgeous entries we had so a big thank you to everyone who took part!! This week we have a fab sketch by my lovely teamie Audrey and a wintery theme for you. Our challenge this week is sponsored by Chi Chi Memories and the DT were lucky enough to be able to use a gorgeous wintery image for our cards!! I chose this adorable little snowman, how cute is he??


I've rotated Audrey's fabby sketch and  used a stripey bp from Artylicious Seasons Greetings CD. The image is coloured with promarkers and then masked to ink in the moon, sky and hills. I've used navy blue card from my stash for matting and layering and for the border (punched with a MP punch). The snowflakes are die cut using Marianne dies, the sentiment is an old stamp from a See D's set die cut with nesties labels 10. The ribbon is a new one from Crafty Ribbons, I have a huge roll of this so you may be seeing a lot of it lol.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CD Sunday: New Year, new to you (ribbon and new image)
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Cold and Frosty Morning

Thanks for calling by, I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation of Audrey's sketch this week

  16. Claire, I look forward to seeing your crafty creations and this time, you've helped me to see what is missing in my own entry. It is gorgeous background paper. I wasn't sharp enough to think of using something like your blue striped bp. Your snowman is adorable. I am so envious of your ability to use sketches.
