Today over at Polkadoodles we have a brand new challenge This fabby sketch  I used the fantastic Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection.  There are so many lush papers to mix and match I had not used the ginger bread before so went down that route How cute are they!
The flower and holly have been layered to give some depth.


I so love Etty, (a friend of Winston's) I made a card with her the other day and as I was making it, I already had whirlwinds travelling around my head of my next project with her. You can find the wonderfull Winston collection here I am loving these round easel cards, but this time did a mini one, I still managed to pack lots of bits on. All the papers, of course Etty, flowers, button, dress, zip, hats are all from the lovely Winston collection honestly every time I look I find something new
The sewing maching was cut on my portrait using matching papers from the collection I added a little pink bakers twine and then again turned to the collection for a couple of buttons, flowers and a scrap of material .
I distressed around the edge of Etty and added white liquid pearls here and there. Added a couple of hat pins and a hanger and a few pearls. A puddle of glossy accents to the flower centers.

Finished off with a little bit of bling dotted about xx

I coloured with Graph'It markers and used glamour dust for sparkle.
