It's my DT week on Sketch Saturday!!

Hello folks!
I'm scheduling this and the next few posts as I'm off on my Holli-bobs today :o) , fingers crossed they all work! It's my DT week over on Sketch Saturday. Jo is having a week off and handed the reigns to me, so to speak. I am also sponsoring this weeks challenge. There will be 5 lucky winners. Each of them winning 3 single digi images from 'Sandra Dry Digi Stamps'. There will be a little wait for the prizes as I will announce the winners upon my return in two weeks. We have also been joined by the talented Mina who is our GDT for August.
You'll be pleased to learn that I'm actually using up some of the older papers I have in my stash mountain. Unfortunately I can't remember where they are from but I thought they would be just perfect for my Holly image. For the top right hand square on the sketch I cut an aperture and put the confetti 'Happy Christmas' greeting on the inside of the card so it shows through. I have put a layer of gold mirri board behind all the panels. I embellished them with sheer ribbon, red self adhesive pearls and QK die cut corners. I coloured Holly with Copic markers. For the fur trim on her coat and hat I used Snow writer sprinkled with glitter, which gives a great texture. I have given her eyes that dewy look with glossy accents.
I hope you have a chance to follow my sketch and enter this weeks challenge. I look forward to coming to see all your wonderful creations as soon as I get back.
Ciao for now!
