Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #15

Just over two weeks until the big day, are we all ready? My Christmas cards are all sorted but I'm still madly trying to get the presents bought! Time for a new challenge at CCWS and this week it was Betina's turn to provide the sketch, we also have an added extra this time of incorporating twine and a charm into your design. We are being sponsored by Stempelstudio.

Image is called Fairy Little and is from Prairie Fairy she is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with stickles. Pink card is embossed with various embossing folders by Cuttlebug and Crafts Too (snowflakes, stars and swiss dots). Flowers are a Marianne Design die. Card is finished with Bakers Twine, a snowflake charm, pearl star and DI.

You'll need to visit the challenge blog to find the sketch and see how my team mates used it.
