Here's the sketch challenge for this month. Don't you just love it?

Here's my interpretation of the beautiful sketch challenge for December.

I used the cute little mirrors and some of the beautiful flowers to embellish the page. The snowflake paste is pretty cool for adding some snowflakes with a stencil I had on hand.

I really liked the Blue Fern dangles. For this layout I used the blue paint included in the main kit to color the dangles. Then, I sprinkled some white and silver embossing powder randomly to the chippies. After heating the pieces with an embossing gun, the paint bubbled up and the embossing powders melted to create a distressed look. 

I keep seeing these embroidery hoop scrap projects and decided to give it a whirl. 

Here's one more. I used the remaining Blue Fern dangle on this one. It is just painted with gesso and the silver glitter glue included in the main kit. The pink flowers are from a past kit. Snowflake paste was randomly added to the page.

You have until midnight, eastern time, December 13th to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on 12/15.  In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
