Inspirational Card Sketchers

As usual Dawn B has come up with another great sketch for this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches.

I decided on a Christmas theme and have used My Minds Eye DP's ......just for a change I hear you say ! Well they are lush and this one with it's cool blues really lends itself to snowmen. So my image is Penny Black 4003H Happy and Cool........only a snowman could be happy that cold I guess ? I stamped him twice and decoupaged him, colouring him with Marvy pens. The mats were cut with Nesties through the Bug, the large snowflake is a Cuttlebug cutting and embossing set and the border Martha Stewart doily lace punch. I distressed the edges with Tim Holz broken china and added some smaller snowflakes using a punch. The greeting is from Penny Black30-035.

Those papers are scrumptious and I think I need one of those Cuttlebug snowflakes now. Great card.
Spent the day with my friend today - showed her your brayered 'birds on a wire' card and she was gobsmacked. Needless to say - she loved it.
