Challenge 15 at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Hi there, time for another challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches} and this time we have a twist, we want to see you follow Betina's gorgeous sketch but also add twine and a charm! 

As always we have a fab prize up for grabs and this time around our sponsor is Stempelstudio so pop on over to the challenge blog and find out more!

For my DT card, I've used a stamp from Stampavie called 'Dearest Deer', its one of my favourite Christmas stamps. I've coloured the image with promarkers and added some glamour dust for a little sparkle. The bps are all from GCD 'Let it Snow ' paper pad. I've added some lace, ivory seam binding and pale blue velvet ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is a stamp from Crafters Companion, stamped on a scrap of bp and embossed with pale blue EP. To finish off I've added some little blue pearly buttons with a twine bow (ok its string from the shed but I don't have any twine lol) and a gorgeous little deer charm. You can see the image and the charm better in this pic:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to stamps: Christmas cards
Bah Humbug: Cute critters
Cutie Pie Challenge: pastel Christmas
Jingle Belles: something Christmassy
One stop craft : Let it snow
Passion for Promarkers: Celebrations
Totally Papercrafts: Let it snow

I seem to be accumulating a large stack of Christmas cards but I still haven't got organised and done any Christmas shopping. I've been a busy bee looking for new kitchen units, tiles, etc. as hopefully after waiting months and months we're having a new kitchen in the new year. I saw the most GORGEOUS sparkly granite worktops but they were sooooooo expensive. I'm sure that whatever worktops I choose they'll soon be sparkly so I'll  get the cheaper ones and save my pennies for crafting goodies lol
Thanks for calling by

  8. the blue against the brown is super with the sentiment & I love the way the rest of the card follows that theme too. I had to chuckle at your faux "twine" - nice one that. Our kitchen was taken back to the joists under the flooring
    & the dust was incredible. Hope you find what you want.
