Willie's Gifts


My Christmas card today has been made with an older Stamper's Delights image Willie's Gifts.

This has been coloured with pencils which make a change for me using markers. I quite like the sift effect it gives this image as it looks like with the vellum background paper.

I followed sketch 217 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for my layout, adapting it slightly for a square image rather than a rectangle.

I added some glittery paper for the strips and embellishing with some fabric snowflakes I bought from Ebay a million years ago. I think I bought a bag of 100 and still have loads left. I added some large blue gems from Paperchase and a silver peel off sentiment.
