Hi Susan here....
It is an exciting post for me today, because this is my first card for the Sentimental Sundays design team. I hope you will join in the fun with us all and call across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog for the full details of the challenge that has started today and also to see all the wonderful inspiration from the design team.
The theme is a sketch and I am sure you will agree it is a great workable sketch, with loads of scope for interpretation, thanks to our very own Dorcas who designed it.
Now for my card... My backing papers are from Nitwits, and all the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. My ribbon is from my local market and matched perfectly the little snowflakes on my backing papers. I made the snowflakes using a sizzix die and adding stickles around all the edges. I used a diamond shaped Martha Stewart punch for the blue border behind the ribbon.
This ever so cute image is from The Stamping Bazaar, designed by Marina Neira, he is called 'Little Elf with Present'. I have used Pro-Markers to colour him, I cut him out carefully and then mat and layered him onto three coloured pieces of card to match the colours in the backing papers, all edges have been distressed and glittered.
This beautiful sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, I coloured the background to match my colour scheme and glittered the edge. Please check out this store, the sentiments are absolutely out of this world, there is something there for every situation and more!!!
