Sketch Saturday Challenge - Using Dinky Dots Freebie!

Here is my card for the sketch over at the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog. There are lots of circles this week, I used 3 flowers for my little circles and drew around a lunch box lid to get my large circle which I embossed with my Swiss Dots embossing folder, and went over with a nail file to sand it down and reveal the white core of the paper. The backing paper with snow flakes is a download from Dinky Dots and the sentiment is from the Dottie and George Christmas collection. And the image... well, if you haven't seen Eskimo AJ Fishing where have you been? You can download him FREE until Wednesday night here! I have coloured him with Pro Markers and put ivory flower soft around the furry bits of his coat. Everyone knows I love my wire, so I added wire to AJ's fishing rod! Hope you likey!!
Love Becky xx
