Sweet Sketch Wednesday #69 & Charisma Cardz Challenge #39

Another lovely sketch has been provided by Arlana at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I've been dying to ink up my new Lili of the Valley Stamp Christmas Candle. My friend Michele kindly got it for me the last time she went to the Harrogate show. How cute is she. I have used flower soft on her hood and the bobbles at the end of her scarf. I've also used glossy accents on the candle flame and stickles Xmas Red on the holly berries. The papers are by Dovecraft called Winter Wonderland. (I actually found a crafting shop when we went to Llandudno lol). The white poinsettia is from Wild Orchid Crafts, how gorgeous is it. I have come to the conclusion tho' that I do not have a decent set of stamps with christmas greetings, I had to use a peel off for the Merry Christmas and am a bit disappointed in it. I will have to rectify that. There is also a challenge over at Charisma Cardz which is Christmas Crafting, so I am going to enter this card into that as well.


  1. I adore that image and have been thinking about getting it. I just have too many images to go through!! That layout is lovely and the peeloff doesn't look "peeloffy" at all, rather like gold embossed stamp!

    Peace & Luv,
