Fast Asleep

Good morning to you, it's Thursday again and that means a new challenge at Willow Sketchie, this week Anne-Marie has chosen the theme 'Christmas in July' and this is my card:

This is Anne-Marie's fab sketch:

Don't forget - you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine.  I've rotated the sketch and re-sized some of the elements, I have definitely followed the theme this week.

I have used the Willow Designs - Fast Asleep stamp and coloured it with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers I also added quite a lot of my new found friend - Stickles. Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Papers: Dovecraft - Jolly Happy Christmas paper pack
Card Stock: Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch,  Woodware - corner punch
Embellishments: ribbon, stickles and card candy from stash
Sentiment:  recycled from an old Christmas card

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

Love to Create Challenge 24 - 3 of Something (3 design papers, 3 card candy, 3 stockings)
I Love ProMarkers Challenge 126 - Sparkle (stickles)
