Inspirational Card Sketches DT Call

As the title suggests, Inspirational Card Sketches challenge blog are on the hunt for 3 new Design Team . To enter you have to create a card based on this sketch and submit it today!

I made a Christmas card with a cute snowflake charm:

The sketch was really challenging to work with and I settled on cutting a window and hanging the charm in. I wanted a simple, pure feel to the card so stuck with white linen and embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflakes folder.

The gorgeous glittery ribbon is from Trimcraft and I matched the sparkle with as many glitter gems as I could squeeze in! I created the sentiment on the PC and cut out using oval Nesties and mounted on some 3-D foam. Here's a close up of the window and charm:

I think crafting might be a bit of a no go zone today as Blake is a bit (well a lot) grizzly and doesn't seem to want to settle. So I predict an afternoon of cuddles for us. The best kind.

Good luck to everyone else applying for the Design Team
