CES Challenge DT Card - A Sketch

Have you have enough of the snow yet or are you a lover of the white stuff. Me, love snow, hate slush. Just hope its all clear for next weekend when were off to the airport to spend christmas in Mauritius. I'm getting all excited now!!
Anyway back to this weeks CES Challenge. The lovely Elisa has a sketch for us to follow. I went for the vintage feel with a beautiful image from Magic Moonlight (all freebies). The papers are MME Holly Jolly, Sentiment - Catslife Press, Pearl Bead Spray. These are all available over at Crafty Emma's Store and she has a massive 20% off until the 6th December. So pop on over to her shop and see what goodies you can treat yourself to for christmas. Also used Stickles and Cosmics Twinkles, Viva Pearl Pen and Assorted Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts for this card.

The rest of my teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you and this week the prize is Ribbons, Fibres and Just words. (sorry piccie wouldn't work)

Heres a list of challenges my card fits into;
Secret Crafter - Christmas
Stamp Something - Christmas
Alphabet Challenge - F for Foliage
My Time to Craft - Vintage Card
Stamps R Us - Holiday Cards
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Sparkly Christmas
Wild Orchid Challenge - An Old Fashioned Christmas

Ooh, Claire - loving the card, looks very classy. Your garden looks lovely, so pretty covered in snow. We can hardly see ours today as we have thick fog. The patio is like a skating rink and I had to hang onto the walls this morning as I tried to get up to where we keep our chickens. Not funny! BTW can I come with you to Mauritius?!! Hugs, Tracey T x
