Willow Sketchie Challenge

Hi Bloggers,

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be drawn as the winner in the Willow Sketchie Challenge. My prize was a Walter & Winnie Does Christmas CD. So, to say 'thank you' to the team at Willow Designs I have used the CD to create a card for my entry into the challenge this week.

This has to be one of the quickest cards I've made in quite a while. The image, sentiment and papers are all from the CD. I used an oval nestie to cut out the main image and a scalloped oval nestie to cut out the mat in gold card. I used a circle nestie to cut out the sentiment. The poinsettias were made using the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias die. I added some Black Soot Distress Ink to the petals and a gem in the middle.

The card was assembled as per the Willow Sketchie Challenge - 10th November

I am also sharing this card at Make It Monday #63

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Hi. Thank you all for your lovely comments. I'd just like to say as there seems to be the idea that I have coloured in the image on this card - I haven't. The image, papers and sentiment are all from the CD. The image is already coloured in. Regards, Julia.
