It’s the lovely Anne-Marie’s turn to host at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s her fabby sketch :

The theme is Vintage.Don’t forget you can follow the sketch and/or theme.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used one of the brilliant Quick Card Panels by Willow Designs .These are just great for those moments in our lives when we need to get a card finished in a flash.And so perfect for giving you a helping hand with your Christmas cards!The beauty of these,being digital,is that you can resize them to suit.Of course you can use them as they are,pretty them up or just have a good old play.For my card I’ve used Panel 2 and printed it onto kraft.I’ve also done the same with a backing paper from the Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD-rom.Keeping with the vintage theme I’ve applied Distress Inks to the edges and roughed them up with a Paper Distresser.Altho’ the panels have a contemporary feel it shows the versatility and how you can adapt them to fit a certain style depending on what you do with them!I spritzed my glass mat with some water and mopped up the inks  left on there with some vintage seam binding berfore adding it to my card.I dug out a little used embossing folder for some texture,not sure why – it’s lovely 🙂 To finish I tied a button with some natural waxed thread which grunged up a little with some more ink.
