Working with sketches at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and ready for christmas.  I still have a few pressies to wrap and the food shopping to do at the weekend.  But as Friday is my last day at work until the New Year I will have a bit of time left for those last minute jobs.  

I am popping by today with some inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for the month of December is to 
Use a sketch

Our sponsor for this month is the lovely Nikki (who keeps us all organised) and the winner will receive some crafting goodies.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe for full details and to check out the fab choice of sketches you can use.  Just let us know what sketch you have used when you enter.

Here is my inspiration project.


My daughter asked me for a birthday card for one of her friends.  This is what I came up with using one of the sketches for the challenge as my starting point.  The cupcake topper has been  lurking at the bottom of my stash box for a couple of years so thought it was time to use it lol.  The papers are from Papermania and I have used black card and glitter card for the matting and layering.  Lots of pink and sparkle were the order of the day for this card.  

Thanks for popping by and you still have until the end of December to enter the challenge.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe to submit your entry.
