Challenge 18 at Christmas Challenge [with sketches}

Hi there, another challenge at Christmas Challenges {with sketches} already, and this time we have a fab sketch by the lovely Janneke (pop over to the challenge blog to see the sketch)

We have a fab prize up for grabs too, we're sponsored by Judikins so our winner will be in for a treat!

For my DT card I've used backing papers from an Anna Griffen kit that I seem to have had forever. I've edged all the papers with a gold krylon pen and added a strip of green card punched with a MS border punch. The image is 'Home for the Holidays' by Katerina Koukiotis from Sweet Pea stamps. I love this image, she is such a gorgeous old fashioned girl.  I've coloured her with promarkers and added snow with a white gel pen. The image is matted on a couple of Marianne die cuts. I've added some gorgeous red and gold ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to finish off.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Crafty Emma's : Vintage Dahling
Dream Valley: anything goes
Fussy and Fancy: let it snow
Gingerloft Challenge: anything goes
Incy wincy: bold and bright
Polkadoodles: Vintage/retro
Shopping our Stash: across the border
Stempelsonnen: Winter

Thanks for visiting today

  20. Striking how the checks of the ribbon pick up on the striped detail in your patterned paper panel. The traditional colours work beautifully with the gold edgein - I'd no idea that the Krylon pens were so vibrant.
