Whiff of Joy - A sketch by Gio

Happy wednesday to you all. Today over at Whiff of Joy Challenge we have a beautiful sketch for you to follow, so I thought I would take the opportunity to make a Christmas card for my Husband, it is always one I end up leaving to the last minute so thought i would get myself prepared for a change. I have used the adorable little birds stamp and coloured it with my Copics.

I have distressed the edges with distress inks and added some stickles to the snow and some of the pine needles. The papers are imaginesce and BG. I have used my MS heart border punch and also MS snowflake, I punched them in the same papers but glammed them up with stickles.

The sentiment is from Catslife Press, it is quite large but as this is a bigger card than I normally do it fitted on just fine.

The rest of the DT have some awesome inspiration for you again this week, what a talented bunch they all are.
