Bizzy Bec has a sketch to follow as part of her design team call - so I thought I would have a go.
I have used my new Bildmalarna Christmas stamp from Nikki, which I have coloured with copics. Papers are from Bearly Mine Designs Extreme Designer 2. Snowflake stamps are from the Cute Companions Let it Snow Set. I stamped them with Blue Denim Distress Inks and embossed them with Moon Glow Magic Moon Pearls embossing powders. I then added some liquid pearls.
I have kept the inside quite simple, and just added a few punched icicles whichI covered in glamour dust.
The pearls and ribbon are from my stash, it doesnt show up on the photo to well but the ribbon has roses on it and is soo pretty.

Over at DU2DS this week the challenge is to make anything but a card. I made a card a few weeks back using UTEE to make the wings which makes them a bit delicate so it needed something a bit more than a normal envelope to go in and had not got around to making anything for it yet. So I took this challenge as being the perfect opportunity qnd have made an envelobox for it. I used the original design for the card.
The fairy is a Cute Daisy May download, coloured with copics. I did use the same colours as on the original card but they look so much brighter because I used proper copic paper for the envelope. Dont know if anyone else has tried it but it is gorgeous to colour on but it is oh so thin. Have found though that you can use photoglue to stick the copic paper onto thicker paper once you have coloured your image (and if you have more sense than me (okay I know that its not hard to have more sense than me - I admit to being sadly lacking in that department) before you cut it) and it doesnt show at all.
This time I used fairy dust on the wings - and this shows I'm not always totally stupid - so that it wasnt so delicate - or I would be making boxes for ever!!!!!!!!

I have made this card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/ which is a sketch with the added option to use ribbons/bows.
As I had bought this gorgeous lacey ribbon today at my little Indian shop I just had to use it, so I turned the sketch around a little bit.
I found these Papermania papers from the Exquisite Paper Collection that matched the ribbon perfectly, lurking in the back of my cupboard.
I love this little image from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with Copics. The flowers and gems are also from the Indian shop.
Haven't made much this week as havent been feeling to great - this offering has taken me two nights to make. Still hubby bought me some more copic pens to add to my collection yesterday so that cheered me up loads. (Only another 80 to go!).
