Winter Amelia

A card for Friday Sketchers Challenge which has a lovely sketch to follow this week. Kadoodle stamps Amelia is pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor then matted on blue bazzil card, I don't know why but I always seem to want to colour this stamp in blues!!. The background paper is Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding' which I think I'm going to be using a lot of, it's gorgeous, matted again on the blue bazzil and wrapped with silver metallic ribbon. I added gems, a Christmas tree charm, stickles and a Craftwork Cards sentiment die cut to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
