2nd post - challenge entry

Hi there,
Me again, with a challenge entry. If you missed my earlier post then please either scroll down or follow the link here, if you have time that is!

Those talented ladies over on the Simply Less Is More blog have set us a sketch this week and told us to keep the proportions and retain LOTS of white space!!!! The sketch is awesome in its simplicity.

And I chose a Christmas card - don't want to be playing catch up in November you know!! Hope you like it.
Materials used:
  • 5" square 250 gsm white card and matching envelope
  • 5cm square white card panel        )
  • Blue DCWV linen metallic panel  ) all corners rounded
  • Black card panel                         )
  • Inkadinkado image inked in Ranger Archival jet black
  • Alcohol markers to colour
  • Crystal stickles and Glamour Dust to highlight
  • Inkadinkado sentiment inked in Ranger Archival jet black
Hope you are having an awesome Saturday, it's lovely here
