FTTC147–Silke’s Sketch Challenge

 

FTTC147 Sketch 06Dec11

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~

It finally feels like winter here! I also finally put our Christmas tree up! It was also the first time of the year I played Christmas music! Yes, I am finally ready for Christmas!

I hope you’re ready for another challenge from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC147). Silke has provided this wonderful sketch to play along! Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creation!!

 

 

 

 

Here is my take.

I designed the card using Joy Is in the Air set. The image was colored with Copic markers and adhered on the lotus pendant mat. The card was used Webster’s Page designer paper. The borders were created with lace trim and polka dots ribbon. To finish off, the sentiment was adhered with dimensional adhesive and rhinestones were placed on the pendant.

 

 

 

The Copic Collections I mostly used
