Sketch This!

I thought I'd missed this challenge but on my morning blog-hop realised that I hadn't. It's another sketch & I have to say, I'm loving them! It's also the new English Paper Company Christmas Collection again cuz I still have loads of bits left and these are my fave colours for Christmas! I stayed pretty much true to the sketch except I flipped it as I have a vertical sentiment. All the edges are inked with Fluid Chalk Ink (prussian blue - I love it!) & I've stapled pink & blue chiffon ribbons from the HOTP Icy Rainbow collection to the sentiment block. The snowflake is cut with a sizzix die - I have this gripseal full of odd bits of chipboard left over from other project (I guess you all do LOL) & there's usually a small bit that will do the job. I covered it with paper first and then die cut - less fiddly! The edges were coated with PVA (I use a glue pen) & dipped into pale blue glitter. It doesn't really show in the picture but trust me, it's there - just a subtle glimmer.
