Christmas for friday sketchers!

Here is my entry for this weeks friday sketchers. I did actually make it last friday and have just realised I need to post it today otherwise it'll be too late, so here it is!

The image is Elzybells and has been coloured with my whispers pens. Snowtex added with glamour dust to give it some snow sparkle! I also added some pearl adhesive stones to the background to give the illusion of snowflakes. Matted onto scalloped ovals cut with my nesties. The background CS is coredinations, which I distressed slightly. Patterned paper was free with a magazine. White flower is Prima and snowflakes were punched from silver mirri card with x cut punches, pearl stones added to the centers. Ribbons are from dovecraft and papermania. I added the sentiment to the white ribbon with black doodlebug rub on's!

I really enjoyed using this sketch and love the effect. I would never have thought to use a triangular shape in the background. Well, I suppose that's the beauty of following sketches!

Hope you are all well on this miserably wet thursday!

Hugs, Vicky x
