Christmas Crafting (with sketches) #72

Good morning all. What a gorgeous day we had yesterday....I did spend too long in the sun though and was rather "pink" last night!! Note to self must use sun lotion every time I sit in the garden!

It's time for another 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's the turn of the Snow Angels to inspire you this week and Angelique has designed the sketch. We are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish.

I've used a Robyn's Fetish image from my stash (putting up the tree) and coloured it digitally before fussy cutting it and mounting with silicon gel. Embossing folders are from cuttlebug and a magazine freebie. Card is finished with a tag and some bling from my stash.

Another nice flat card for posting!


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.
