Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #29

 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. It was Claire's turn to design the sketch this time and there's an added a twist of no traditional colours (so no red and green please). Sadly we're having to say goodbye to Claire as she has left the design team but hopefully we'll see her joining in the challenges in the future. We are being sponsored by Krea Treja.

Image is from Wild Rose Studio, coloured with promarkers and highlighted with stickles. Papers are also from Wild Rose Studio. Embossing folder from Cuttlebug, oval dies are both nesties. Lace, sentiment and gemstone snowflakes from my stash.

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.

Christmas Card Challenges - dots and stripes

The Squirrel and the Fox - make it sparkle
Di's Digi Designs - spotty and dotty
