Whiff of Joy Challenge #40

Over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog, this weeks challenge is a Sketch by the lovely Donalda.

I have gone for a Christmas theme for this challenge, and its my first one of the year! I did not make any cards last year as I was fat and pregnant and after the end of August, all of my time was given to my baby girl!

Here is the card I have created with Donaldas Sketch in mind. I decided to keep the papers vertical and not go for the diagonal (I know, its not in the Sketch lol), and the circle top right I brought forward and used the flower for this element!

Doesn't Lizzie look all cosy warm with that muff!

Here is Lizzie up close!


Image: Lizzie with Muff (kindly stamped by Donna for me to try - she is now on my wish list!)
Papers/Card: Papermania christmas paper stack
Tools: Copics, Retro Punches in Med and Large, Cuttlebug - swiss dot embossing folder
Embellies: Charm from Donna (thankyou), buttons from stash and DoveCraft Funky Fibre - pulled apart (from Amy my DT Buddie), Ribbon from local craft store, Pearl Dots from Papermania

Thank you for popping by today!
Enjoy your Weekend...

Oh she is so adorable all bundled up, nice and cozy. She's extremely charming with her little bows on the sides of her boots. Great job.

Beautiful post,
