Fetch A Sketch Challenge 14

It's time for another Fetch A Sketch challenge! We are a few days late this week in setting this challenge - Christmas sort of caught up with us!

Jenny is the hostess this fortnight and here is the sketch she has created:

For more details on how to enter the challenge, please pop over to Fetch A Sketch!

We are sponsored by the very generous Anice of Funky Hand who is offering a copy of Craft The Year Away to our lucky winner! But if you can't wait that long, there is a fab 50% off Funky Hand products sale on right now until 29 December - click on the banner to be taken there!

For my sample I've used acetate which has been embossed with a Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder and I've added some ribbon and embroidery thread from my stash. The embroidery thread has been woven through the acetate (which actually does open out like a card - you just can't see the back layer too well!) I've used the Sizzix Super Scallop Tag die for the actual shape of the card as I can never cut out acetate very well with scissors for some reason!

I've cut some flowers with a Cuttlebug die and I've used Hearts and Flowers download (£1.75 for the duration of the sale!) printed onto vellum with velvet brad centres.

Hopefully, that has given you some inspiration, if not, go and have a look at Jenny's sample - it is stunning!

Good luck with the challenge!
