Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #12

Another two weeks closer to Christmas and a new sketch over at CCWS. The lovely Betina got to design the sketch this time and we are being sponsored by Sew Many Cards. The DT were offered images to use and I chose PJ with snowballs.

The image is coloured with promarkers and cut out with a circle nestie. Backing papers are from Papermania and were a freebie with a magazine. Card is finished with some lilac raffia, metal ribbon bow (both from my keep for best stash), snowflake button and a sentiment (from an old kit).
Do pop over to the challenge blog to view the sketch for yourself and see the inspiration from my team mates. you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Critter Sketch - use 3DP's
Paper Playtime - use sentiment and buttons and bows
Clear it Out - trims
Designed to Delight - cute critters
Lollipop Crafts - embellish it
Fab's big Christmas - something shiny/snowflakes
Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
Ribbon Girl - jingle all the way
