Sketch or Tic Tac Toe - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 23rd of September

I am trying not to be late this week!!
This week at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by Christine, who has decided to shake it up a little and have a sketch:

Or the alternative is a Tic Tac Toe - this means that you pick one of the lines of options, for example patterned paper, sparkle or shine and tree.

We have two sponsors this week:
Beccy's Place, who is offering three digi images or one digi set to the winner.

and Crafty Ribbons, who are offering $10 to spend in their store.

Please remember that to be in with a chance of winning a prize that it is Christmas Projects only.

So on to my card!
I started following the tic tac toe right down the middle - so tree, sparkle or shine and patterned paper. But then I had a really hard time trying to find a patterned paper that went with my colouring. So I decided on the other middle - blue, sparkle or shine and embossing.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a circle of X-Press It paper, then I stamped the snowbound country church from O Holy Night from Power Poppy using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
I then coloured the image with the following Copics pens:
  • sky: B39, B29, B28, B18, B16, BG01, Y11 (around the moon) 
  • moon: Y11, C1, C3
  • trees: G17, G82, YG11
  • wreath: G17, YG11, R29
  • house: E39, E35, E31
  • snow: BV20, clear Wink of Stella
Here is a close up of the colouring:
You can see all the Wink of Stella on the snow and trees!

The idea for the sky came from the Kit and Clowder Easy Night Sky from Alyce's Background Handbook Part I and the colours were from Create and Learn April 2015.

I have then embossed a piece of green Core Essentials glitter cardstock with an Ultimate Crafts Winter Chill embossing folder. I scored and cut it on an angle to fit with the Sketch Saturday sketch #430 from the 17th of September:

I adhered the embossed green glitter card stock to a square Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
I stamped the sentiment "Peace on Earth" from O Holy Night by Power Poppy in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.
I adhered the coloured piece over the top of the embossed piece and then for the two embellishments, I used stickles to adhere two pearl dew drops underneath the coloured piece.

Here is the finished card:

Hopefully you can see some of the glitter on the snow and trees. 

There is inspiration from the Snowflakes DT over on the Winter Wonderland blog, so please pop over to everyone's blog by clicking on their name. We always appreciate a comment or two! :)
