Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #23

 It's time for our next challenge over at CCWS and we hope you're playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. Nicole has designed the sketch this time and we have an added twist of White on White. We are being sponsored by Hein Design.

The digi image (which was left over from a previous card) is from Whoopsi Daisy and I've coloured with promarkers, fussy cut and mounted 3D to a deckled edge rectangle nestie. Vellum from Papermania, embossing folder from Cuttlebug, tag and sentiment die from Spellbinders. Ribbons, lace and pearls from my stash. Small snowflakes are punch waste and large snowflakes are from a Fiskars punch. Card is finished with some stickles. All card and paper came from my bit box for this card. 
I have to say I found the sketch a little daunting this time but once I'd got it under control I'm very pleased with how my card turned out :)

You will have to pop over to the challenge blog to see the sketch for yourself, remember to check out the inspiration of the other DT members whilst you're there.
