DYSU #50 - Winter

Thursday again and time for another fun challenge over at Do You Stack Up? As the chilly weather moves in, we want you to show us your WINTER projects.

Our sponsors this week are:

 Digi Darla Digital Stamp Club One Month’s Membership

Crafty Emma's Store - £10 Gift Voucher (exc p&p)

Inky Impressions$10 Gift Certificate

I have used this lovely image from Digi Darla this week called "Better to Give".  As soon as I saw her, I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use - this one was a candy win and it matched perfectly with the presents in the image!!  The red paper has been Stickled to give it some wintry sparkle.

Here is a close-up - I have added some white dots to the green ribbons and spots of Stickles as falling snow.

 A close-up of the sentiment and one of the snowflake charms.

Medium - Promarkers and white gel pen
Papers - candy win and Nitwits
Cardstock, ribbon, charms and gem brads - stash
Glitter - Star Dust Stickles and Crystal Ice
Sentiment - freebie (can't remember where from - sorry)

The rest of the fabby DT have created some gorgeous projects for your inspiration this week so I really hope you will join us for the challenge. Pop on over to DYSU and be inspired.
Thanks for looking
Denise xx
