Challenge #5 at Delicious Doodles

Hiya folks!

Well, here we are again, another week, another white-out!! Just when we were all getting back to some kind of normality it goes and snows again - and it's still coming down. Schools are shut, so I have the pleasure of not just the hubby on his holls from work, but the kids too. It remains to be seen if we get the same probs on the roads as last time. . .

So, it's Friday, so time for a new challenge at
and this time we have a wee sketchy from our very own Pascale:

 And this is my take on the sketch:

I have used 'Candle with Ivy' for this card, coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, scanned in and printed a few times for layering. My papers are from a variety of places, artylicious cd, Tinker & Co, MyGrafico, and have been inked on the edges.

I used gold mirri at the bottom of the image panel, and gold ice-textured card for the leaf punches. Flowers are made with punches and spare card, with petal edges inked and rubbed with metallic rub-on. The centres are fake brads, as are the five in the top corner. These are so easy to use, just sticky gold dots really! I have also used loads of stickles - gold for the frame and the sentiment, yellow for the ivy leaves and candle.

I hope you manage to find the time to join in with us at the
this week. I know your schedules are probably very busy right now, I know mine are!
Stay safe and warm folks!!

Some challenges I am entering with this card:
CYDA - Punches
Allsorts - Last Minute Project
Sweet Stampin - Recipe
Digital Tuesday - Sparkling Christmas
Tip Top Tuesday - Christmas Inspired
S4TW - Christmas

Wow Teri, fabulous card hun, love the candle and bling. My children finished school today - the school stayed open even though there was snow - nothing like what you are having. Alex was sick though so she missed her end of school party.

Hope you are well and sorry I haven't been by for a while hun.
