LOTV DT Card & Challenges


Here is a card I made following this weeks Sketch Saturday. The image is one of the many new releases from LOTV. Its called "Bringing Gifts " and is available from the LOTV Shop. Coloured with Copics, papers from MME and lots of stickles for sparkle. Border punch is Martha Stewart and the sentiment is from Fairy Doodle. I dotted around the background with a Grey Copic marker then went back over randomly with the colourless blender.



Here are a few more challenges that this card fits into;

Creative Inspiration - Anything Goes
Our Creative Corner - Chrismas in July
One Stop Craft - Patterns
Crafty Angels - Something Old, Something New (old sentiment, new image)
Stamp Something - Christmas in July
Ai Factory - Christmas In July
Aud Sentiments - Choose Your Own Christmas Sentiments
Polka Doodles - Generic Male & Female
Lollipop Challenge - Anything Goes
Mami Doodles - Anything Goes
Paperplay - Anything Goes
DutchDare - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon - Christmas in July

Its so nice to be back crafting. Had a rubbish week but trying to think positive and move on.
Thanks for taking the time to take a look!

PS; Candy will be posted on my blog over the next few days. Just my way of saying thanks.
