Sketch Saturday's 1st DT week!

This week is Sketch Saturday's first DT week! woohoo!
and sketch #20 has been designed by the lovely Gill.
Not only that, Gill has very kindly donated a beautiful Whiff of Joy stamp as a prize for one of you lucky challengers!

Here is my card, I have used dovecraft paper, a snowflake embossing folder and blue organza ribbon on the base of this card, The image was given to me by Tracie (Thanks Tracie! xx), I coloured the image with watercolours, and added the 3 square gems for a bit if icy bling ;)
The greeting was cut from a sheet that was free with a magazine, I stamped a snowflake design (by Anita's), coloured them in with a sakura clear glitter pen and then cut out each of the three snowflakes by hand, they were extremely fiddly to do, but I think they look better than if i'd have just punched them out as circles. (I've just noticed that the top of one snowflake has bent down a little *doh!* I never realised that when I took the photo!!)

Thanks for looking, please go check out Sketch Saturday now, we look forward to seeing your entries.... GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY! xx
