It's the most wonderful time of the year!! I love everything about Christmas! Swirlydoos only themed kit makes it easy to scrap Christmas photos and make cards.
For my first project I knew I wanted to go with a softer shabby chic style.  I did some machine stitching and light distressing. The gold poinsettia is from my supplies. I've had it for years and was happy that I could finally use  it!
 
For my second project I made on over sized tag. I pulled the colors from the vintage photo and added lots of gesso for a frosted look.
This page is based on the monthly sketch. I just love this photo of my oldest and youngest daughters. I painted the doily to match the color scheme using the Silks Paint that came in the kit. After it dried I dabbed so Martha Stewart gold paint for an accent color. You can find the butterflies HERE at my Etsy Shop.
December Sketch by our designer Begga. The sketch challenge is opened to all, so come and join us!
