Stampin for the Weekend meets PDD Friday

TGIF, lol!! Today's card  is my combined DT entry for PDD Friday, PaperPlay Challenges and Stamping for the Weekend.

This week on SFTW we have a wonderful sketch by Amy for you to follow

Our sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy who are offering the winner one stamp...

Again we have 2 wonderfully talented guest designers joining us this week, Tracy and Jerusha. Be sure to check out their blogs along with the rest of the design team to see what they've been up to :)

On PaperPlay Challenges it was my turn to set the challenge and I went with one I'm sure everyone will like.. Favourite Embellishment!! My favourite has to be RIBBON (and flowers, and charms, and... lol )!!

Our sponsor this week is An Siopa Bui 

and the prize this week will be a Whiff of Joy Stamp of your choice from the Henry Mouse Christmas Range. 

For my card I used Tilda with Tinsel image that I bought from Magnolia Sweden. I've coloured her with distress inks. I've shaded the background lightly with Pine Needles. I then added Star Dust stickles to the tinsel.

I used 2 grungeboard snowflakes from the Seasonal collection and painted them with Picket Fence crackle paint. Instead of being patient and waiting for it to dry I used my heat gun, haha, so that I could add the Frosted Lace stickles. The thing I find great about the frosted lace is that is seems to have more texture than the other clear stickles and it is brilliant for things like snowflakes and icicles. I finished off my card by using a little sentiment from Studio G Christmas collection.

Don't forget to hop over to the other Pez-A-Doodle DT member's blogs to say hello!! Have a great weekend :)
