Well with the weather as unpredicatable as it is I'm not sure if I should be making summery cards or christmas cards!! In the end as the rain began to fall I decided to go with the christmas theme.
There's still a couple of days to go before the challenge ends at 'Dies To Die For' so I thought I'd make another card following this months sketch.
I also wanted to go for a couple of challenges which are a blue and white theme as I think it works perfectly for christmas cards.
I used a hammered effect base card and layered it up with a blue card embossed with snowflakes and dies - Memory Box Frostyville Border, Marianne Designs Creatable LR0189 mistletoe and LR0129 doily. The image is from a Lili of the Valley sheet of die-cuts which I cut into a circle as I thought it looked more effective. I wrapped the ribbon around a strip of card before sticking it down and finally I added a blue jewel to the centre of the flower and a sentiment.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
