Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #47 and BLOG CANDY

So as you can see I had a REALLY fun night last night - I made 2 cards which did mean I stayed up later than I should have but I enjoyed myself none the less!!! hehehe

This is the sketch for the Inkspiration Challenge...

And this is my card...

As you can see (I hope you can!!!!) I've flipped the sketch to suit my card, but I did try very hard to keep most of the components of the sketch present.

Once again I've used the lovely Dasher - he is just adorable I think, and I love to see his antlers all glittery! I've also embossed on vellum for the very first time and really like the effect. You might not be able to pick it up in the photo's but I have used the snowflake images from Snow Swirled to stamp on the background card behind the images - they're just not showing up to well?

All in all a very wintery Christmas card - so not an Australian christmas but gives the illusion of a white one!

Now - can you see that gorgeous little snowflake that creates my focal point just below Dasher??? If anyone can tell me where I've got it from I will send them a little BLOG CANDY!!!! Just leave a comment on this post - I will write the names of all correct answers and do a little draw next Wednesday! Happy guessing!!! :) :) :)

Thanks so much - you guys are AWESOME!!!

Lots and lots of smiles

What a cool winter looking card you have created!

I have no idea on the snowflake :(

Sandra said...

Absolutely gorgeous card Adele!!! The embossing on the vellum is beautiful.

I agree with Sarah-Jane. I think it's the snowflake from Merry Details but I could be wrong :) If it is, it looks so much prettier in real life with the dazzling diamonds.

Hi Adele,

I love your take on the sketch and I LOVE the colours you used - very wintry. Your embossing looks great too. I won't attempt to guess where the snowflake is from, will leave it up to the experts!!

I never tire of Dasher and you have used him fabulously with the flipped sketch. Lovely touch of lace and ruffled ribbon. thanks for playing with us this week :)

Just lovely. Love the ribbon and the vellum especially. I'm another guessing Merry Details.
