ICSketches #28 ~ Christmas Theme

Here's my latest DT card for Inspirational Card Sketches.... and this week we're incorporating a Christmas theme.


Well,
Dawn has designed a Super sketch for us! Please go and have a look at the prize on offer too, as we have another Fantastic sponsor for this week. Dream Designs owner Bety is sponsoring this week. Bety has a lovely shop online with lots of wonderful cards kits and much more.
I have been dying to use these dies ('scuse the pun LOL) for some time and thought they're great to go with this weeks Christmas theme. These characters are adorable but instead of super cutesy I went for a more 'shabby' colour palette. This is a very generic card, think would be good for males or a family maybe.

It's a little hard to see in the thumbnails that I have added just a flitter of glitter where the snow would fall. I am So loving the Spica pen I think mine's close to a restock already LOL! Very simple card for me and no colouring... just a little shading and highlights.
