Whimsical Wednesdays "Let's Get Sketchy" Challenges

Hello everyone! It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This time the challenge is to use the sketch to create a card. Our own Nanne designed this sketch and we are being sponsored by Stamp Fairy this week. One winner will recieve $10.00 worth of digi's from their shop. They have some SUPER CUTE images including the one that I used for my project today!




     
I just love how this card turned out and I ADORE the image. This image is from the Stamp Fairy and it's called Barry Throughout The Year #1. I colored it with Copics and added glitter stickles to all the white parts. I used the Lacey Circles Nestitbility for the mat and I used my sewing machine to stitch around the outer edges of the card. The tree I made by cutting a simple triangle shape and then adding punched snowflakes that were folded in half to make the branches. After it was all done I added white dimentional glue to them for the snow. I stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun set to a banner that I cut by hand and mounted it on pop dots.

I hope you will all play along this week and don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has made!

I am so in awe of this tree, (in-tree-ged, you might say.) Is there any chance of you doing a tutorial on how you did it?

I think your card is adorable, Gigi! I thought you used the MS branch punch to make your tree; would never have thought about using a snowflake punch--how ingenious!!--Pat N.
