Its time for Waltzingmouse sketch challenge 11. Guess what? one lucky random participant will win TWO new sets due for release in September just for entering this sketch challenge-how fantastic is that??!!
Those lovely ladies have provided another fab sketch to challenge us all with!! Round cards are a bit of a challenge for me, but here goes!! Here is the sketch:
I must have been feeling Christmassy when I made this - inspired by a pictures i found of Scandinavian red and white Christmas decorations & candles...
and here is my take on it.....a little card/decoration to hang on the christmas tree and a cute snowy/icy looking snowflake soap to go with it (any excuse for me to make a soap these days-am really on a soap making kick at the moment!!)
and here is the matching soap....the sentiment reads "Let It Snow"
This is the first time I customised my own ribbon by stamping the beautiful border strip from Very Vintage Christmas in red onto some white ribbon. I also stamped the red plaid using the stamp from pic-nic Patterns onto white cardstock then stamped and embossed the beautiful lacey edged circle stamp from Vintage Circles Small and a snowflake image onto real red cardstock. I pulled it all together with some vintage cotton lace trim, red & white gingham ribbon, zig-zag stitching, some buttons, red thread and a little wooden Santa - so cute!!
Thanks so much for looking and hope you've enjoyed what you've seen :-)
