Inspirational Card Sketches -DT Card



Good morning from a very cloudy South of England. This week challenge over at ICS is a fantastic sketch from Dawn and she would also like to see a Christmas theme, and here is my take on this weeks sketch. Was playing with my MM Slice so chose ovals intead of rectangles. Remember the sketch is there for you interpret how you wish. The papers are BG Figgy Pudding and the stamp is "Frosty" from Hampton Art. The border is an MS punch and have finished with a bow and 2 snowflake buttons.
This weeks sponsor is Dream Designs who are offering a Kit to one lucky person. Do take a look at what other great cards the rest of the DT have made and I do hope you can play along.
I've alot of running around to do this week so apologies if I'm not hopping as much as I would like.
Take Care and TFL!
