Whiff of Joy challenge - Donalda's sketch

This week we have a gorgeous sketch for you designed by our very talented Donalda. I loved working with this sketch, thank you Donalda! There are so many fantastic elements to this sketch.

For the part circle I stamped my Stempelglede grunge circle stamp and clear embossed it before rubbing the whole thing with luster rub ons.

I have coloured Melinda with copics and added clear glitter glue to her wings. I have then cut her out and mounted her onto card but haven't glued her wings down so that they rise from the card. I have added one of my favourite curled wire embellishments to frame the image.

Appart from the gorgeous Christmas paper I still haven't got around to buying any Christmasy stash so I decided to have a go at making some poinsettia style flowers. I'm really pleased with how these have turned out. I made them from coredinations card stock, veined and shaped them and added red stickles. The holly underneath is also made from coredinations cardstock which I have clear embossed to give them a shine like holly leaves.

For the diagonal element I have written the carol "Angels from the Realms of Glory" with my calligraphy pen, distressed the papers and rolled the ends to form a scroll.

The inside is decorated with a co-ordinating paper and some more poinsettias and holly. The sentiment I have written with my calligraphy pen.

All of the papers have been distressed with antique linen and brushed courdory distress inks. I hope you'll join us for this weeks challenge and pop over to the Whiff of Joy challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's stunning creations! x
