Terry's DT week

Good Morning! Hope you are all well and happy :)
This week is DT week over at Sketch Saturday, which means I get to play with someone else's sketch this week :)
It's Terry's turn to host, and not only has she made a rather super sketch for us, but she has found a generous sponsor in the name of Art Journey, who have a fantastic prize up for grabs ;)
Our Guest Designer for this week is the very talented Kim, and later in the month we have Louise from Art Journey herself joining us! :)
Thank you ladies!

Here is my card using Terry's fab sketch...

The image is a gorgeous hÄnglar and stÄnglar stamp that was a gift from my lovely friend Maya, I stamped her a few times so that I could 3D her, and coloured her with promarkers, I added a bit of glitz to the bauble and the button on her hairband with a glitter gel pen.
The background paper is by SU and is another colour from the ski slope DSP collection. Both of the dotty yellow papers are by Dovecraft (back to basics pad). The border punch is by Xcut.
The sentiment is handwritten and punched out to echo the shape of the snowflakes.

here's a closeup of the image, I wanted it to look like her arms are holding the bauble, so I used foam pads for dimension, but glue where the arms/sleeves needed to be flush with the base image...

Please go see what Kim and the rest of The Saturdays have made to delight you this week by visiting Sketch Saturday, thank you.
