F is for Freebie + A Sketch

Good morning to you all. It is Wednesday and that means that it is time for another

Our theme this week is F is for Freebie + a Sketch.

We are lucky this week to be sponsored by StampFairy with a great prize to one lucky participant of 3 digi's of the winner's choice. Gerda has also created an adorable freebie that you can use for the challenge.

Head on over to the StampFairy Blog to download the image.

In addition to the freebie, I have created a sketch for you to follow. I kept is simple so that you will have the freedom to embellish your projects as you desire, but we must be able to see the map of the sketch in your creations.

I have used one of the images from the Santa's world collection for my card which I have coloured with Copics and embellished with some puffy snow.
I have used the more of the glittery paper that I bought for my green card earlier this week along with some Basic Grey and some Core d'inations cardstock which I have embossed and sanded for more texture. For embellishment I have kept things simple using only a ribbon bow and some punched snowflakes accented with rhinestones for some more sparkle.

I hope that you have enjoyed your visit today. Please do stop by the ABC Christmas challenge Blog as there are so many more wonderful creations from the DT there to inspire you.

So now it is over to you ... Don't forget that in order to qualify for the prize, your card must be a new Christmas themed item and you must use a either the Freebie or a StampFairy image from your collection ... oh, and follow the sketch too.

StampFairy has lots of wonderful Christmas images which can be found here.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges
