Di Hickman December # 1

Love the sketch over at Di Hickman's this week, I was inspired to make this card as soon as I saw it and KNEW the 3 elements had to be snowflakes, must be because it is so bloody freezing in Birmingham at the moment. The UK is having a very cold spell, goodness me you'd think it was Christmas soon as the weather is doing what it is supposed to at this time of year !

The main paper on the background is a recycled gift bag from last year and the white snowflakes are flocked, it is so very tactile and I thought it was a perfect item to recycle. Best bit is it was a large bag so I've got a nice big piece left !

The ribbon is a sparkly wired edge one I got from Poundland some time ago. The sentiment is a DCWV sticker from the QVC drawer set. I punched holes and set eyelets with my Cropodile Big Bite and used the wire from the ribbon to 'dangle' the snowflakes from which were purchased as Christmas decorations.

I really like this card and think all the elements work well together. Thanks to Di for a great sketch.

You're welcome for the sketches sweetie! I seriously just thoroughly enjoy making them! Love your take on the sketch, I agree snowflakes just "go" with this design. Maybe it's because of the holidays I dunno. TFS! and Happy Holidays!
