Colour Create and Sketch & Stash Challenges

So much for a scorcher this summer. Since my daughter finished school for the 7 week holiday it has not been very good at all. Still it does give me more time to make cards and join in the challenges which I am really enjoying.

My card today is Blue and white for the Colour Create Challenge #23 at http://colourcreatechallenge.blogspot.com/

I have also followed the sketch at Sketch & Stash, challenge #15 at hhtp://sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/ a copy is here.
I have turned the image around and made the strips wonky on purpose as I usually can't do them straight anyway!! The papers are from the Funky Seasons CD, the image is a new one from Dustin Pike (another freebie), I have used some old glitter card and some pearl brads. The snowman is coloured in using a Sakura stardust gel pen and glitter glues.
Hope you like it.
