Christmas Wish

The Sweet Stop Sketche Challenge blog has this sketch as their sketch of the week.

This A2 card has as its base Kraft cardstock. The background papers are from a two year old DCWV Christmas stack. I used a Fiskars punch for both the borders and the snowflake. The image is from Sassy Studio Designs was colored w/Copic and die cut w/Nestabilites. Using the Nestabilities as a stencil, I added Close To My Heart "Topiary" colored ink. The swirl bling was colored w/Copics. The finishing touches include green & white twine, a button and a Tim Holtz "adage ticket."
