Hi all,

I've neglected the Global Design Project Challenge for a few weeks now but this week I have found the time to enter, hooray!

This week is a sketch challenge which means that the site provides a sketch of a card, along with some examples, and it is down to you to create something that fits with the sketch!  I always enjoy these as it's always interpreted differently and it's great to see how some people really do think outside the box!  I have included the sketch image below for you to compare!

This card is a standard C6 card, and I have used the Whisper White Shimmer Cardstock for the base layer.  I find this cardstock a little more porus for watercolouring and adding ink.

I have used a sheet of regular paper that I have cut 3 circles out using a 2" punch and a 3, 3/8" punch in a strip.  I have then used that sheet as a mask and using a sponge brayer to add the ink.

I have used the Dashing Deer Thinlits to die-cut the reindeer out using Gold Glimmer Paper and before attaching to the card, I have tied some Linen Thread around the card and secured with a big bow.  I always enjoy a rustic looking christmas card and the linen thread is a great addition.

"Merry" is from the Festive Farmhouse Elements set and these are wooden sentiments that you can colour with Stampin' Blends.  The sentiment comes from the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set.
