Working with the great sketch this week I started by covering the base card with my gorgeous new digi paper (see below). I then made a couple of panels using two more of the papers and adding some gold ribbon to one. The papers I have used are actually very pale pink but for some reason the blinkin' computer has changed the colour a bit. I cut the border with a border punch and added more gold ribbon along the middle. The image I have used is one of the new Christmas stamps from LOTV called 'Christmas Dance'. I have coloured this gorgeous image with promarkers and glitter, distressed the edges and added glitter before layering using my nesties. The circular sentiment has also had the edges distressed and glittered. Well, hope you like it, thanks for looking.
