The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Winter.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

This is the adorable Jingle Bell by Crafty Sentiments Designs.She and her little friend have been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Polar White Flower Soft has been added to the trims on her clothing and the snow on the ground.The falling snowflakes have been dotted with Liquid Pearls.After embossing the greeting at the bottom of the card a patchwork panel of patterned paper and kraft with gingham ribbon wrapped around has been adhered.Stitched dies have been used to cut out the image and kraft card mat.A star button threaded with jute twine is the finishing touch.
