The Sketchy Challenges DT - Kathrin's Sketch

 Woohoo!!!  It is time for another gorgeous sketch at The Sketchy Challenges and this fortnight our lovely Kathrin has created our sketch!!  I have used papers from an old K&Co pad and distressed them with gathered twigs distress ink.
 I have coloured up the stunning Edwin With Sack #105 and coloured him with copics.  I've also stamped the Holly Swirl #413 around the edges with gathered twigs distress ink.
 I've used the Tim Holtz pinecone die to create my pinecones and his Festive Greenery die for the holly leaves and the swirl.  I've also added a couple of bells and some lace from my stash.
I've cut a star sentiment tag to pop behind the image using a Sizzix die and stamped the North Pole stamp from an older Magnolia collection using gold embossing powder.  The gorgeous vintage seam binding is from Live and Love Crafts.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at The Sketchy Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  Thanks for looking! x
