Sketch Saturday - No 11

We have had some great sketch challenges this week and the sketch on Sketch Saturday is no exception. I have decided to make another Christmas Card, (starting early this year, instead of the week before Christmas), The stamp is Flute Angel by Precious Moments, what a shame these stamps are only available now on e-bay, the prices they are reaching are quickly taking them out of my price bracket I am afraid. She has been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's, the Dp are all scraps that I had over from last year, the snowflakes were punched, and I am not sure where I got the snowflake charms from.



I have added the close up as I have been asked quite a lot how to shade a white dress I hope this helps

your card is gorgeous Jacqui, that image is lovely and beautifully coloured. It is a shame about the stamps as they are so sweet...I was outbid this weekend on a couple...so tempting to bid again but the prices are silly. Hugs RAchxx
