Papertake Weekly Challenge...Sketch 24

Hi Folks.....time for me to share the second card for my GD spot over at Papertake Weekly and the challenge this week is another fabby sketch from my lovely bloggy bud Dawny P and I just had to use the gorgeous new papers I bought on Friday....I am definitely well and truly in Christmas mode now and the box of cards would be filling up nicely if friends wouldn't keep going off with them.....but I have a feeling this will probably be the first Christmas ever that I am not running around like a headless chicken to make my own personal cards....well let's wait and see.

Papers: Fancy Pants....Christmas Magic Collection
"Chestnuts Roasting"......."Merriest Tale"
Image....Papermania.....Snowflake Decoration
Sizzix Texturz Plate...Snowflakes
Cuttlebug Snowflake Die
Hero Arts Clear Buttons
Twine....Pearls..Snowflake Brad from stash
Glamour Dust
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads...Brushed Corduroy....Aged Mahogany

Can you tell that I absolutely adore snowflakes and I love this Snowflake Bauble stamp from Papermania..you could be seeing a lot of this one and another of my favourites...those clear buttons from Hero Arts ....just stick to patterned paper using a little Glossy Accents and when dry....cut out and pierce the holes with a pokey tool and hey presto....a button that matches your papers perfectly.
What a fabulous response to the "FAKING IT" challenge last week....can't wait to see what you all create this week from Dawny's fabulous sketch .....will be popping over to pay you a visit.....in the meantime happy crafting.
