Challenge 14 at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Hi there, its time for a new challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches} already and our sketch this time around if from my lovely teamie Wilma. I've rotated the sketch as I wanted to use the text border that matched the dps I've used. Sorry about the awful pic, the dark foggy days combined with my dreadful photography skills are to blame lol.

Our sponsor this time around is Michelle Perkett, Michelle is such a talented artist and her digi stamps are just gorgeous so I'm sure you won't want to miss out on the chance to win. I've used one of Michelle's Christmas images, isn't she adorable? She is called Tia and you can find her in Michelle's Etsy Store


I've coloured Tia with promarkers and added ivory flowersoft and glamour dust  for the trim on her dress, hat and muff. The papers are all from GCD Joyful Peace paper pad, distressed with a kraft knife. The flowers are ivory paper flowers from my stash, coloured with Jolly Roger Red moonglow ink spray. I've used Marianne die to cut the leaves and swirls. To finish off I've added a faux gems and a  fab postage stamp sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, I love these stamps and they have a matching die too.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Daisy Doodles: Christmas plus use a digi
Digital Tuesday: sparkle and shine
Everybody Art Challenge:Christmas cards
Papertake Weekly: Christmas crackers
Pollycraft: Christmas fun
Shopping our Stash: christmas or winter
Whoopsi Daisy: anything goes at Christmas
Winter Wonderland: What a cutie

Thanks for popping by today.
