A Sketch for Dottie!

Hiya everyone, well my crafting time this week has been rather hit and miss but after the wreckage that putting up a shelf in my craft room created....I did manage to put together a Design Team card late last night. It is of course for todays challenge over at .Dottie's World

The challenge this week is a fabby sketch:

Be prepared is so not my motto, but I do strive to be so........SO I made a Christmas card!

I had the idea of using snowflakes around the top edge of the circle but I really struggled with incorporating the squares at the bottom of the sketch, until...PING...I had a little brain wave and dug out the unused set of 4 little cuttlebug wintery embossing folders that I have had since first getting my Cuttlebug a good few years ago! That then led on to me using the "Snow Sledding" words folder which I aslo cannot remember ever really using!
This card also fits in with this week's challenge over at;
The ABC Challenge which is U-for unused!
The Saturday Challenge which is to use metal. (Brads,charm, metallic ribbon,metallic rub ons)
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round- which is to use flowers on your card!
Winter Wonderland - See Amid the Winter's Snow.
Right- Chris and Jack have gone swimming so hopefull I can spend a girlie hour or so colouring with Amelia!
Pop over to join in with this fabby sketch over at Dottie's! Bye for now!

I love all the texture you have incorporated into your card Adele, works beautifully. I have the text folder but never thought of cutting out individual words like that they are so effective and you have now opened up a new world to me and my embossing folders!LOL Enjoy your girlie time. xx

I love the texture on the image plate base and how it makes her stand out so much. Great effect.

Thanks for joining us at Winter Wonderland this week, hope to see you next challenge
