Time for a Sketch - An An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. Hope you are all well and enjoying the beautiful weather we are having at last!
Today sees another new challenge over at An Oldie But Goodie and this time we have a fabulous sketch from Francesca to work with

And here's my take on it:
(yes it's another Christmas card - at this rate I will be ready for Christmas by the end of the summer lol!!!)

So here's what I used:
 Image - Penny Black - from The Wonder clear set - coloured with PM's
DP's - My Mind's Eye - The Merry Days of Christmas
Corner Swirls - Spellbinders - Elegant Posts
Star Punches and pearl stars - Hobbycraft
Martha Stewart - Doily Lace border punch and Artic Snowflake punch
 Snowflake buttons and ashesive pearls from stash

Well that's what I did - it would be great if you popped over to the main challenge blog see the other fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT. 
Hope you can join us this fortnight.

Challenges I would like to enter:

ABC Christmas Challenge - 'O' for Older Image
Fab N Funky - Animals (no birds or insects)
The Rubber Cafe - Christmas in July
Stamp Something -Something Embellished
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything with 4 Legs
Totally Gorjuss - Punch or Die Cut 

Thanks for popping over. I'm off to get ready to take Jack and his friend Tenpin Bowling - not done that in ages!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Will catch up with you all later.

Hi Debs

This is beautiful.

Love your colour choices and the lush corner details (and the PB stamp of course!!).

Hope the ten pin bowling was good. Haven't done that in years .. .. in fact the last time I went was one of those awful "outings" that work arranged that everyone "had" to be seen to go too!!! You know the ones that happen in your own private time when you would much prefer to be with your family than the work colleagues you have spent all day with!!!! LOL!!!

I certainly don't miss those days!!

Love Jules xx
