52CCT Sketch Challenge


Happy New Year!
I am delighted to have joined the Design Team of 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown!
If you join in with the weekly challenges, the idea is that you will end up with a tidy pile of Christmas cards all ready to send for next Christmas. This is great for me, as I'm always scrabbling around at the very last minute looking for cards. I am very excited to be joining such a great team and I hope that you will play along with us.

Here is my card for the first challenge of the New Year. You don't actually have to stick to a star with this sketch, but I decided to use Stampin' Up's Many Merry Stars stamp set. I have stamped the image on Lost Lagoon cardstock using Versamark and then embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Bright and Beautiful Stars set. The background comprises All Abloom and All is Calm DSP, and I have added a bow of Island Indigo Baker's Twine with a sequin coloured with a Blendabilities marker.

I hope you like it! April x
