2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

It's time for another challenge on 2 Sketches 4 You and the sketch this week is from Kazan.
Where are the weeks going and let's face it we are now on the run up to Christmas.....bah...humbug.....I hate all the manic running around in the weeks beforehand....shopping.....cleaning....cooking mountains of food and we don't eat half of it.....the decorating of the tree and it is no sooner up and it's time to take it down.......What a grumpy old mare, I hear you say..but if truth be told...I LOVE CHRISTMAS...the looks on the faces of my grandkids on Christmas Day and it's a great excuse to get out the glitter and go wild.

This is very similar to a card that I used last year for one of my Christmas Workshops.....it is SPARKLE, GLITTER AND BLINGICIOUS.....and I have heard it said that BLING is going to be the IN trend this year. The colours are the softest sky blue and a gorgeous choco-latte brown which I don't think the camera has done justice to......still a favourite colour combo of mine. The snowflakes and lettering have all been given a magic fairy sprinkling of glitter. The ribbon is from Costco.....a 45 metre roll for about £5.00...I have had it for about 5 years and it just goes on and on and on......gorgeous wired sparkly organza......must pop down and see what they have this year.
  • Papers: Pink Petticoat....Doodle-icious Christmas
  • Stamp: Stamps Away......Tree
  • Snowflakes: Quickutz Die
  • Words: American Crafts....Foam Thickers.....Doodlebug Rub-ons.....Woodware Family Christmas Clear Stamp Set
  • Glitter: Decoart Glamour Dust
  • Gems: from my stash

Love that ribbon. I've just used the last of my perfect organza ribbon that seemed to go with everything and am very nervous of trying to replace it. Your card is luscious ad I particularly like the colour scheme.
