GDT at CCWS


A couple of months ago I received a surprise e-mail asking me if I would like to be a guest designer for three months at Christmas Challenges (with sketches). I love the sketches and of course love making Christmas cards so I was delighted to say yes so here I am with my first GDT card for them. This week we are sponsored by


and I was able to choose one of their digis to use on my card. 

I used Promarkers and decided to make my gingerbread man a lovely chocolatey colour. I used one of my favourite Christmas paper packs this Christmas, Papermania Home for Christmas. This goes so well with kraft. I added a K&Co candy cane and a LOTV Grunge sentiment, another favourite. I used a new MB ornament die and used 3 of the cut out ornaments too.
