Christmas card done for Sketch Saturday challenge #29. Image is Rachelle Anne Miller Moose stamp coloured in with Nick Bantock inks and water colour pencils.

Image background was done using the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder onto Basic Grey cardstock which was then sanded down to expose the white core.

The second CPS card is NOT a card of my design. I really loved Sherry Wright Happy Holiday card on CPS. I had very similar papers and embellishment, so I've done an almost exact copy of the card. Except I've used My Mind's Eye Be Merry papers and embellishment and added extra Basic Grey Santa Baby snowflake stamps in Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

I've found another sketch page today from following a link on Sandra's blog from Saturday Sketch. It's Called Pollycraft Monday and they are running a competition, so I thought I'd enter. Here is the card I made for the Pollycraft challenge sketch. Part of the challenge was to also to use some Pollycraft product. They had some lovely free papers to download, which I did, but decided to use the Wilbur Woof downloadable file (not free) instead, as I was immediately drawn to it while I was looking around there shop. I printed out a few copies of the Wilbur Woof file and made used it as a Decoupage 3D image, which I embellished with Basic Grey Wassail rub-ons. The papers used are also Basic Grey Wassail Christmas papers. The edges of the papers were inked with Ranger Distress Inks in Vingate Photo and Fired Brick. The sentiment is a sticker I backed onto more BG paper. Three more BG snowflake rub-ons were added at the top corner. Then the rub-ons were then accented with red seed beads. Thanks for looking!
