Snowflake and Sparkle - DT entry

Hi all!

Hope you are all well today. Glad you could join me here on my patch of blogland.

This card is for five challenges, and a DT entry!!

First up is the sketch, provided by the lovely ladies at Papertake Weekly. Getting my entry in a bit earlier this week!!

Next up at Digital Tuesday, the theme is Christmas Sparkle, and at Sophisticat the theme is Snowflake and Sparkle. At MyGrafico, they are wanting to see some Gingham or Plaid, and last up is a Non-Traditional Colour theme at A Spoon Full Of Sugar. Phew! I hope this card covers all of these. . .?

I am using a Snowflake Medallion digital image which was a Freebie at 'Fred She Said' ages ago. I have used it before, it is such a versatile image! I have cut out and layered it with foam pads, and coloured with my watercolour pencils. To this I have added silver dots with my Pebeo Touch dimension paint. It is fastened with a glittery snowflake brad that I have added some ink to, followed by a glitter spot in the middle.

Papers used are from Funky Hand, one of the word book downloads, which I have tweeked in Photoshop to give me the colour I wanted. The Gingham paper is from Tinker & Co, also tweeked for the right colour. I added some silver stickles round the edges of one of the sheets for some extra sparkle!!

Last thing was the sentiment. Didn't have one indicated on the sketch, so I popped a silver peel-off down the side. Forgot to mention I rubbed some ink round the edges of the base card, and the Gingham paper.

Hope it will do folks! I have also decided to use this as an entry for a DT position at Stampin' For The Weekend. Fingers crossed!!
