Digital Ink Co challenge

Morning all, just got the piccy taken and edited for the challenge at The Digital Ink Co challenge blog . This week it's a sketch. I've cut down an A4 piece of card to form a 6 inch square card blank. I've then matted and layered a textured piece of silver card from my stash on top of the blank. Next I used a picture that I took yesterday of a neighbours holly tree full of berries as a background. Dug out yet more card stock stash and cut out a small rectangle of the Christmas tree decorated card stock and distressed the edges with a nail file. Next I cut out and coloured the Snowman digi stamp from Jules Junk that I had won from one of the previous Digi Ink challenges. His buttons, hat and scarf have all been decoupaged and then I added some glitter in certain places. Lastly I added a little sentiment from my Christmas stash from last years magazine freebies - oh and I added some glitter onto the wording as well.
I'm hoping to get another thingy made for the challenge at Incy Wincy but as I've got work tonight I'm not sure if I'll get back on here today - it depends on whether I get sidetracked with the telly or not.
Anyway I hope you all have a good weekend and look out for my Guest DT 3rd week creation.
Take care
