Snow Days

I have made this card to enter this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge, I nearly missed the deadline - something I manage to do rather a lot.


I have been using my favourite technique from the Pattern Play Online Card Class - you really should check these classes out they have some fabulous ideas and techniques.

I cut quarter inch strips of paper from my Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pack and adhered them diagonally to a plain piece of paper. I then used my Clearly Besotted Delightful Doilies die to cut out the doily shape that I have used as a wreath. The sentiment came from the paper pack and the button and twine are from my stash. The spotty papers are also from the Carta Bella paper pack and the white panel has been embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge 50 - Sketch

Deep Ocean Challenge 63 - Button It Up
Quirky Crafts Challenge 21- Favourite Things (favourite technique)

Thank you so much for joining me today, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to my new followers and say a huge thank you to everyone that takes the time to visit my blog and leave a comment.
