Sketch Saturday Challenge




Here are my cards for the fabby sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week! There is also a Design Team call, all you have to do is make two cards, one of which must have a Christmas theme and that's it! Why not have a go?!
The first card was made whilst Arline and I were having our craft day on Saturday! It literally took me about 3 hours to make and in the end I abandoned it and finished it later, I think I got a bit too engrossed in the sketch lol! I used a really cute Alota image coloured with Pro Markers and new papers which I picked up at our local craft store. I also picked up these handy little leaf punches, I love them!! The second card was a little quicker to make as I'm more comfortable with square cards. I used a really cute H&S image for this one, coloured with Pro Markers and a little bit of ivory flower soft for the snow. The papers and embellishments are mostly from the Brenda Pinnick Christmas box kit from QVC.
Hope everyone is having a lovely Bank Holiday Monday!!

Love Becky xx
