Christmas Winter Wishes

Hello! Welcome to Taylor's sketch challenge friday...I thought it would be perfect to end the week with something Christmas, traditional, dainty and pretty....some of my few favorite things!
Can you tell I'm loving the petite papers from Webster's pages! I did a tag last week using this same paper HERE...I am so glad the pack has more than one sheet of this!
I created my own frame by using my spellbinder dies and then covered it with glue then glitter. A nice snowy feel...even though it is rain here.

Here are all this cards' details:
Skater's Pond (Thomas Kinkade) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso Adirondack (Ranger)
Linen (CHF)
Petite Papers (Webster's Pages)
Copic Markers
Glitter (Martha Stewart)
Die cuts (Spellbinders)
Felt Strip, Flowers (Prima)
Ribbon (Offray)
Crocheted flower (made by me)

A little close up to see how I combined a spring crocheted flower with the pointsetta. I tried to mimic this color scheme in the skirt of the skater. Pink and Red can look sooo pretty together.
Here is a close shot of the image. An oldie but a GOODIE! I stamped it on new linen paper from CHF and it instantly gave it this pretty aged feeling. Added glitter to my scene as well with my glue pen.

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow

Just a little note to let you know that I am taking this next week off...Wishing all of my blogging friends a very BLESSED CHRISTMAS to you and yours!

I LOVE Websters Pages, too. Your card is amazing, Sherrie! It reminds me of a snow globe. I'll have to try that glitter effect on the frame... such a beautiful look!

Merry Christmas Sherrie!
