Challenge 20 at CCWS

Well Valentine' s day is over and done with so put away those romantic stamps and start to get organised for Christmas, it won't be long lol. We've got a new challenge to inspire you at Christmas Challenges {with Sketches} and this time the lovely Marga had designed a fab sketch!

Our sponsor this time around is Crealies

So pop on over to the challenge blog and check out Marga's gorgeous sketch and find out more about the prize!
For my card i've used a gorgeous stamp from Chocolate Baroque's 'New England Winter' stamp sheet and bps from their Season's Greetings Cd. I . The image is coloured with promarkers and has tiny dots of stickles for the lights on the tree. I created the sky with memento inks in shades of blue and added snow with a white gel pen.  i've used polar white flowersoft and a little glamour dust to create some snow around the cottage. I've added some ribbon, a die cut snowflake and some blue fibres from my stash to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Di's digi designs: Something with snow
Paper Sundaes: Sunday bar, I've used blue and distressing
