Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #13

Only four challenges until Christmas - are you panicking yet or are you super organised? Today it's time for a new sketch at CCWS and this time it was Renata's turn to provide the sketch. We are being sponsored by Hobbystempels NL. Here is my card:


Image from LOTV coloured with promarkers and a silver gel pen, highlighted with stickles and cut out with a deckled edge nestie. Blue BP's are from Dovecraft and are glittered, glittered vellum from Docrafts goody bag, silver card candy from Craftwork cards, ribbon from Costco. Silver mirri, stars and sentiment from my stash. Embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
