Stocking Pals

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  I can't believe this is my last posting for 2015 and won't be back again until February 2016.  I'm taking a break to Europe with my family for 7 weeks.  We're starting to get excited but I do have so much to be before we leave.
Congratulations to this weeks winner great work there were some lovely cards I commented on this week.

It's the end of the month challenge this week here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and we're rewinding and revisiting a sketch of Arlana Patten's from October 2010.  

I had so much fun making this card, as it's not traditional Christmas colours but thought it was something a wee bit different.  There is a total of 43 layers in making of this card, from the card base, ribbons and flowers.

Here the sketch our design team worked with it isn't hard and a load of fun.

Sketch #71

Here's my card using the same sketch back in October 2010.
