Woosh......


In this busy run up to Christmas I had to find time to do this week's Sketch Saturday challenge and I have combined it with the Penny Black Challenge. This card was inspired by some Costco wrapping paper that I bought a year or so ago. The Penny Black challenge this week is a recipe, 3-2-1 and that's three flowers (I have used snowflakes instead) two papers and one ribbon. I know last week I said I wanted to steer clear of Christmas cards but this design came into my head as soon as I saw the sketch and it can be the start of my 2009 Christmas card stash as I have already made and sent this years out.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Love this card Gill. I bought this set of stamps at the NEC but didn't get chance to use this particular one. I love the way you've done them sledging downhill. I have left something on my blog for you. Sue.x
