Get ready for Christmas at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Where on earth is this year going? I can't believe it was the longest day yesterday ... before we know it Christmas will be here and its never to early to start your Christmas cards. Our latest challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches] is a great way to get ahead with your Christmas cards and this time we have a gorgeous sketch from my lovely teamie Nicole to work with. I really enjoyed making my DT card which feature a really stunning digi stamp from Crafts and Me called 'Twiglight'. Its not necessarily a Christmas image but I thought she would be a lovely Christmas angel.



Before I go on the card deets, I'm sure you want to know about our fab sponsor for this fortnights challenge, 'Stempelstudio'  are sponsoring our latest challenge so pop over to the challenge blog and find out about the great prize and check out Nicole's gorgeous sketch too :-)




I've coloured Twilight with promarkers and added glamour dust to her wings and the trim on her dress. After cutting her out carefully, i've matted her onto a pretty doiley. The bp is from Raspberry Road Designs and I've added 3 parchment squares stamped with a Joanna Sheen doiley stamp and edged with stickles. The sentiment is also from Joanna Sheen. To finish the card off I've added some faux pearls, white seam binding ribbon, a die cut snowflake and a rose from WOC.  I've struggled to get a decent pic but this photo shows a little more of the detail and is a truer colour than the larger pic. 



I'm entering Twilight (oops I keep typing Twiglet for some reason lol) in the following challenges:
Corrosive Challenge: Ribbons and bows
Delicious Doodles: things that flutter
Hooked on Craft : Anything goes
Jingle Belles: Bundled up (3 or more layers)
Sweet Stampin: Things with wings
One Stitch at a Time: Things with wings
Polkadoodles: All of a flutter
Sentimental Sundays: Summery or Sparkly and shimmery 

Thanks for visiting today :-)
