Sketch Inspired

Hi All,

I'm speed crafting this week!  I tidied up a little this morning but as this rate I'll never get my Christmas tree up in among all the crafty stash.

I was just browsing some blogs and came across a great sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday and was instantly inspired. 

Here is the wonderful sketch

I went Christmassy but not traditional.  I love that die and glitter paper.

I started with an A5 red card blank from Anita's.  I used Simon Says Stamp Star Border die twice in the centre.  My glitter paper is from Creata and came in a 6 pad set.  They are brilliant papers.  Usually there is one or two papers that don't float your boat in a set but these are just scrummy. 

My sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and is a clear stamp.  I love this Christmas set.  The reindeer is really beautiful and I'm planning a card from him already.  I inked through my Spellbinders Beaded Ovals die with some pigment ink from Lakeland.  They used to sell crafty goodies but don't any more which is a real shame.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

What a sparkly greeting card. Love your take of the sketch with all the stars, and the sweetly colored circles in the die cut. So pretty!
