Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Meljen's Designs

Sooooo, another Wednesday is upon us (holiday now feels like forever ago), which means that is is time for another sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and here is this week's sketch from our lovely Arlana:

This week we are sponsored by Meljen's Designs:

Don't forget to join Meljen's Designs on FacebookHERE to take advantage of special sales and promotions that are just for her facebook fans! 

Who are kindly giving this week's winner 4 free images of their choice!!

So, without further ado, here is my offering:

I coloured my image using promarkers, adding stickles glitter glue to the fur and the swirls (although it doesn't show up very well in this picture).  

As is my habit now, I used my sewing machine to stitch all the layers together.  My papers are from the LOTV Frosty Christmas paper pad.

The ribbon (which is metallic siliver) is from my stash, as is the glittery Christmas tree.

Finally, I added blue gems to the ribbon as per the sketch, blue mini gems to the corners of the card and used stickles glitter glue to add some sparkle to the corners of the image and the paper behind.  I love this 'merry christmas' paper as it means I don't need to bother finding room for a sentiment.

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

A Gem of A Challenge - Christmas Is Coming
Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes with Snow
2 Sisters - Christmas With No Red or Green
