Here is this week's Sketch and my card using an image from the Priscillastyles store called Christmas Ornaments:

I coloured using copics and a white gel pen, and covered both the image and the embossed background using some really sparkly crystal glitter accents. The top border is punched using a Fiskars punch and the two turquoise gems come from my bellydancing costume making stash.

This sketch is a really easy one to use this week, even if you decide to go for the fancy option.

!I'd love to know what you think of my Christmas card using the unconventional olours of lilac and turquoise - my fave colour combo at the moment!
