Less is More wk34 - a sketch & some news!

It's taken me a while to come up with something for this week's Less is More challenge, which is a sketch.  I was hoping something a bit more interesting might come to me, but... nope!  At least it's another one to add to my very small pile of Christmas cards...


As I nearly always use a white base card, I thought I'd use a coloured one for a change, so the base is made from teal card from Papermill Direct, with some white linen for matting.  The snowflake was cut with a cuttlebug die, covered the card candy centre in stickles, and the sentiment is an Elzybells one stamped in versamark and embossed in white.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

And now I can finally tell you my first bit of good news :o)  I'm on the brand new design team for Papercrafts TV - you can see their fab store here.  I've actually known about this for AGES and have had to keep it quiet, but as I've now been announced on the blog I can tell all... so if you'd like to read a lot of nonsense from me and see a terrible photo, have a look at the Papercrafts TV blog!
