Pixie Cottage Challenge 46 Sketch and or Let It Snow Theme

For my design card for this weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge I used a adorable Christmas stamp called Candy Cane Wishes by ArTish. I painted and shaded my image with my inktense watercolor pencils.  My papers were by My Minds Eyes Christmas Line.  One of my snowflake MS punches was used for the bottom border. 


After following the sketch, I kept looking at this card and thought that it was a little too plain for my taste, so I added loads of prima flowers as well as ribbons and more glitter.  So here is a picture of my finished project!

It's time for another sketch and theme challenge here on Once Upon A Wednesday!

We have a great sketch if you'd like to give it a try.

In addition to the sketch we have the optional challenge of a "Let It Snow" theme on your project.
As always you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!
The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. The winner and the Top 3 favorites will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends.
