Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #9

Another fortnight flown in so it's time for another challenge over at CCWS. We're loving seeing your takes on the sketch each week but please ensure you're following the rules to be in with a chance of winning the prize. This week we're being sponsored by Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps and it was the lovely Marion's turn to design the sketch. Here is my card:

I've combined two digi images (star string from Meljens and dog from Sliejke's Stamps) and coloured them with promarkers and a gold gel pen. Swirly backing card is from  Kanban and red paper is from Papermania. Embossing folder is Stars from Crafts Too. Card is finished with a bow, sentiment and stars from my stash.

Pop over to the challenge blog to see the sketch for yourself and enjoy the delightful cards my team mates have produced.

Challenges entered:
Cutie Sunday - Christmas Card
Daisy Doodles - raise it up (embossing)
Pile it On - lots of layers
CBGM - cute as a cupcake
Digital Tuesday - celebrate the season
CHNC - swirls
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Simon says Stamp - song/film (How much is that Doggie in the window)
