December GDT at CRAFT challenge :-)

Wooo hoo how exciting! I was over the moon to be asked to join the lovely team at CRAFT challenge as a guest designer this month. Of course I jumped at the chance and here is my first project.  for this weeks challenge which is a sketch challenge.

I've used gorgeous vintage papers and this lovely image from one of  our sponsors this week, Floppy Latte Designs. The aren't really Christmas images but I thought they'd work well for a man's Christmas card especially with some warm copper. I coloured the image with promarkers and distressed with tea dye distress ink. The imgae and the bps are all matted on copper mirri card. I've stamped a swirly border around the image and along the side of the main bp using a stamp from Stampers Anonymous and copper dreams EP. The sentiment stamp is from Chocolate Baroque, again using Tea Dye Distress ink and a copper mirri spellbinders die cut. To finish off I've added some faux gems and some die cut leaves, a little button and some seam binding ribbon.

We have another sponsor this week too, as well as a prize of a $10 gift certificate from Floppy Latte

 there is also a $10 gift certificate  from  the lovely Glitterbabe too!!
