Sketch Saturday # 293

Hi Crafters,
Well I took some great advice from a bloggy friend and followed a sketch in the hope of kicking my Mojo in to life again.....and I think it's working! Thanks Linda.

Now I know I've taken the easy option of that lovely decoupage set of Wellington the Bear from Docrafts again but I have followed the sketch at...
...and I am entering this card for the challenge.
I used the decoupage from the sheet but this time I only used the matching papers for the banners. The beautifully embossed star card, which I Distress Inked with Faded Jeans, came from Lime Tree Crafts and I purchased this from Birmingham NEC last year. The faded type font paper comes from Hot Off The Press and I've had it in my stash for ages. I was hoarding it but sense prevailed and I thought it would look great with this combination.
That's two cards made for February, I have another nine to complete AND I'm now slightly behind with my 'One a week Christmas card' challenge that I am determined to stick to... I might see you all later with another post.
Bye for now,

Beautiful card Lorraine, love the inking on the embossing, I've never quite managed to get a handle on doing it that neatly and love those fishtail banners! So glad you've started to find your mojo again. Hugs, Linda :) xx
