Friday Sketchers Challenge 71 & SFOS Challenge 71

Hello everyone, I have made this card for Friday Sketchers Challenge 71 where there is a great sketch to follow this week. I am also going to enter it for a Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 71 where they have a theme of Christmas. Speaking of.... the reason I haven't been blogging much lately is because I have been overloaded with making cards to sell in the UK. I am going over there next week and this will be the last opportunity I will have to get cards over there before Christmas...... I am sick of the sight of Christmas cards already!!!!

It is a good job I love this WOJ image as I have made loads of cards with her, so you will be seeing quite a bit of her over the next few weeks..... don't panic though, I wont show you them all!!!!! Willow with Lantern is coloured with distress inks and the DP is from Basic Grey. I used my MS punch for the snowflakes and the flower and ribbon are from my stash. I did a little piercing to add more detail to the edge of the image and the papers are distressed with fired brick.

As usual, a close up of my image.

Card/Paper: Rad and White card, Basic Grey - Wassail
Stamps: WOJ - Willow with Lantern, Studio g sentiment
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, walnut stain, fired brick, weathered wood, black soot, peeled paint, spiced marmalade
Embellishments: Flower, ribbon, pearl brad, stickles
Tools: MS snowflake punch, water brush, needle, sponge
