Challenge #24 at Christmas Challenges {with Sketches}

Where did the last two weeks go?? At this rate it will soon be Christmas lol. But my Christmas card box is filling up nicely and here's another card for our new challenge at Christmas Challenges {with Sketches} where my lovely teamie Renata has designed a gorgeous sketch to inspire us, we also have a twist to go with the sketch - use traditional Christmas colours - so pop over to the challenge blog and find out more

As always we've got a fabby prize up for grabs, this time our challenge is sponsored by Elizabeth Bell

For my DT card I've used the beautiful Pine Cone Fairy, a very old stamp from Joanna Sheen, she's coloured with derwent pencils and has a little glamour dust for some sparkle. The papers are from GCD and the pine cones were made with my new Tattered pine cones die. Ribbon, lace, pearls and buttons from my stash.

Its a bit of a short post from me today as i'm still not feeling well and the doctor says I've got shingles, ouch. Hopefully it will clear up soon and I'll be able to catch up with all my blogging buddies

  8. Lovely card Claire, I have that stamp lurking somewhere, love the colouring, it's gorgeous. The pine cones go so well with it. So sorry to hear about the shingles, you take care.
