52 CCT Sketch Challenge

Hello! I am delighted to be hosting the October challenges over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I hope that you will join us with your Christmas and winter themed cards.
We have a sketch challenge for you this week.

You are very welcome to change the shape of the elements if you wish or to flip your card, but we should be able to recognise the original sketch.

I have used an owl stamp from a Papermania set called Honey and Hugs: Festive Frolics. He has been coloured with Promarkers and I lined his envelope and hat with glitter, although you can't really see that very well! Thc gingham circle stamp is from a retired SU set called Kind and Cozy. I also used a SU woodgrain embossing folder to make the tree trunk. The lovely sentiment came with Creativity magazine.

Please have a look at the wonderful cards that the DT have made this week.

I would also like to enter my card in CHNC Challenge extra for October.

 Have a great weekend, April x
