Stamping for the Weekend and Pollycraft Monday Challenges

I followed Amy's lovely sketch on the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge I also followed the colour combo on the Pollycraft Monday Challenge which is Tangerine/Turquoise/Chocolate :-)
Pollycraft are celebrating their 1st Birthday with a fabulous blog hop :-) Happy Birthday :-) x x

I joined in the Pollycraft blog hop and really enjoyed it, it inspired me to buy a few of Paula's lovely digi images :-) This one is called A Christmas Hug and will only be available as a digi image for a short time so go and get it while you can !! :-) The tree background is a free digi download too that I copied from Paula's blog :-) Thanks Paula x x
The papers are from a fabulous Funky Fairys Papercrafts download called Add a Splash of Colour... lovely set :-)

The image was coloured with copics and sparkle added using copics spica pens and sakura clear star pen. I also used some Do Crafts 3D clear glitter :-) I added some papercraft shimmer dots at the top,, I tried a ribbon,,, a snowflake ,, nothing looked right so I opted for these in the end ,, I know on the sketch you have a larger element so am hoping this still qualifies !! :-)

Thanks for looking,, please leave me a comment before you leave so I know you've been to visit :-)
I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)
