The card below is one I made to enter the Merry Monday Challenge using sequins. I didn't get around to photographing it and uploading it in time. I finally got around to it yesterday whilst photographing the one above so I thought I would share it.

|Sketch challenge 223|
I am going through a bit of a "Christmas in July" phase at the moment, so I thought I would use the sketch for a festive card. I am pretty happy with the actual sketch part of this card, but how to mount it and background had me stumped for ages. I tried SU starburst framelits in gold and silver mirror card, a scalloped circle in white glitter but none of it seemed quite right. Then I found a doily that was just a bit bigger than the image which I am happier with.

This week the challenge is white and green.
I have die cut a large foliage image from green card, cut the image again in white glitter card and inserted it in the green. Next, I mounted this on a thin mat of silver, stamped my sentiment and then adhered it to my card. To finish off, I have added some large white sequins and gems with a greeny hue.
I found this card difficult to photograph as I kept getting the shadow of my hand with the camera reflected in the silver mat.

I am now on a break from work for a week, so I am hoping to catch up with some of my much neglected scrapbooking. With the advent of Project life/pocket page scrapping I do seem to be getting more photos into albums (still years behind though). I have been scouring Pinterest for inspiration for my next few pages. If I am happy with the results and may even post a few.

I have varied them all slightly.
This one has the Merry and snowflake adhered to the base card and the embossed card raised on foam squares.
