Allsorts and Card Patterns

Good morning everyone!

Yesterday evening I made a Christmas card following this week's sketch at Card Patterns. I am also entering this into the Allsorts challenge, where the theme this week is "Snowflakes in September".

(Click on the picture to enlarge it if you want to see the sparkle!)

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Stamp: from SU set "Polar Bears"
Colouring Medium: Copic Ciaos
Tools: Nestabilities Large Scallop Square and Square; Cuttlebug "Snowflake" embossing folder; Martha Stewart Snowflake punch
Accessories: Ribbon (from Dunelm), Glamour Dust, Papermania gem
Ink: Brilliance white ink to edge around the triangles of paper

Thank you for visiting my blog today and for any comment you may leave, they really do make my day.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hugs, Clare xx

Oh, Claire! This is lovely! I adore how you attacked this sketch! I love that you flipped the diagonal to compliment your bear image and then divided the upper and lower triangles with that divine pattern paper! Expertly done! Yipee!
