Sketch & Stash #25

Hi Peeps. Great to have you visit my little blog. I hope you enjoy your stay and find something to bring a little inspiration.
Well hubby got the outside lights up today and he may as well saved himself the bother. It is so foggy here that you can't see them across the street. Lol. However when (or if) it clears up I'm sure they'll make the place look very Chrismassy.
Anyway I had better get back to business. This card was made for this week's Sketch and Stash challenge where they gave us a fantastic image to follow. I have inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Christmas Presents" and coloured her with my Copic Ciaos. The backing paper is My Mind's Eye's "Colourful Christmas" (I think) and I have used some new lace ribbon I bought recently. It runs vertically and across the middle of the card although it is almost obsured by the image and the handmade flower. I also used a Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch to create two borders in different shades of blue. The small flowers were made using petals punched out on various small punches.
I really hope you find this pleasing to the eye and would love to read any comments you might chose to leave. It would really make my day if you could find time to let me know you had visited. Thank you for popping in - hope you come back soon.
Hugs,
