I'm so pleased with how this card turned out. Sometimes you have an idea in mind with an image and the card doesn't come out as well as you planned but using the sketches at Christmas challenges with sketches really helps and this week's is a beauty as usual. Lots of lovely layers to ply around with. I rotated the sketch to fit my image. Somebody gave me some stamped images a while ago and I therefore have no idea who makes this wonderful stamp so if anyone knows please leave me a comment. I just added some glossy accents to his glasses and some glitter to the snowflakes.
The papers are Kaisercraft, apropriately called Dear Santa. I also used some bell charms, faux leather, Tim Holtz salvage sticker sentiment, hessian and a metal corner from Wild Orchid. I've used Di Vintage Photo and distressed all the edges too.
I would also like to enter this into the Child's Christmas challenge at Wild Orchid and Magical/Mystical at Incy Wincy.
I usually schedule my posts at least a day before they post as I mainly use my iPad for linking and commenting. It's so much quicker for commenting and the only problem is when people have their comments embedded in the post instead of as a pop up box. I won't bore you with why. If you don't have your comments as a pop up box here's a little plea from me to change your setting. I recently suggested this to somebody and she changed and commented that it is much better.
