Sketch Saturday DT Call

Sketch Saturday are on the hunt for new Design Team members, here's the card I'm submitting:

It's based on the fab sketch below. The current DT are going to choose their favourite 12 entries and if I'm one of the lucky 12, there's another stage to go through!

The stamped image is a Snow Bunnie from CC Designs, fab set and enjoyed using her. I shaded her with Copics and ProMarkers, highlighted with Glamour Dust for snow and the ovals are Cookie Cutter dies mounted on 3-D foam. I forgot I had these papers, they are digi downloads from Mad-About-Cards and I've never used them until now, I should really find a way to visualise of all the digi stuff I have. Any ideas without printing out a small rain forest?

I made a bracelet for a lovely blogging buddie not long ago and it got me back in the swing with my beads so after I'd wrapped some ribbon I got to work with beads and wire:

Here's a close up of the image to see the sparkle:

Finally I made the pretty snow trim with my Fiskars border punch and added some glitter gems to the snowflakes. The sentiment is done with Doodlebug rub-ons, again with Glamour Dust round the edge, I do like my sparkle! The white snowflake was one I had in my stash.

So that's my entry, all I can do now is cross my fingers. It's not too late for you to apply but you need to do it by 8pm today!



  1. great colour scheme and layout, beading is a nice touch too, unusual, well done

  2. Fab card, I love a bit of sparkle :o) I had a go at the DT call too so fingers crossed for both of us!

    I'm the same with digi downloads, I forget what I've got, and I keep meaning to get them organised. I was thinking I could maybe crop little squares of them and put loads on one sheet, but thinking about it is as far as I've got!
