Challenge #16 at Christmas Challenges {with sketches}

Hi folks, how are your Christmas preparations going? This time of year always seems to be so hectic but it will all be worth while on the day :-). If you've still got some cards to make pop on over to Christmas Challenges {with sketches} as we have a new challenge starting today with a gorgeous sketch from my talented teamie Carol.

As always we have a great prize up for grabs and this time around we are sponsored by 
Whiff of Joy, so you're not going to want to miss out!! Hop on over to the challenge blog to find out more :-)

For my DT card i've used papers from GCD Ella Blue collection, all matted on to kraft card, a kraft border punched with an EK success punch, a Marianne die cut snowflake with a little stickles. The image  is 'Window Wonder' from Di's digi Downloads,  coloured with promarkers and glittered with judikins prisma glitter although that doesn't show up too well in the pic. To finish off I've added some blue ribbon from my stash and stamped a 'Let it snow' sentiment on a die cut kraft tag

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: brown and blue
Crafty Boots: Christmas
Digital Tuesday: Winter Wonderland
Di's Digi Designs: Christmas
Dream Valley: christmas
Everybody Art Challenge: anything goes
Little Claire's: Family Christmas
Passion for Promarkers: Mega Christmas challenge

We've got an extra Christmas treat for you at Christmas challenges {with sketches}, we're having a blog hop which starts on Christmas Eve with prizes on all the DT members blogs!!

Merry Christmas
Claire xx
