Stampin' with the Dragon Challenge # 13 sponsored by Kenny K

Morning everyone. I can't believe it's challenge week again over at Stampin' with the Dragon! This week we are sponsored by the amazingly talented Kenny K who kindly gave the DT an image each to work with, please check out their blogs to see what they did. The challenge this week is to make a card using this sketch:

I followed the sketch exactly and came up with this "traditional " Christmas card (sorry there are so many pictures, but this winter gloom is making photography a nightmare - no glitz and glimmer shows unless I take pictures from differing angles).

 The image has been coloured with Promarkers, glitzed up with Sakura Gel Pens, Glossy Accents and Stickles. The white background has been embossed and then swiped with a silver inkpad. Everything has been matted and layered onto cardstock. The edges of the mats have been edged with Sakura pens. Finally I've added some black gems to the corners.

Purple Cows Guillotine
Big Shot
Sizzix texturz plate

Black, pink and white cardstock - The Papermill
DP's - mag freebie from Craftwork Cards
Sakura Gel Pen
Silver Ink Pad
Glossy Accents
