Sketch Saturday DT call Final 12!!

Yep, I know what you are thinking, and nope, I don't believe it either!!....
I am a finalist in the Sketch Saturday DT call!!!.... How mad is that??
Okay, I'll be honest, on the day I entered I was having one of those ' I can do anything I set my mind to' days (we all have them right?) ... and then the following day I thought...ahhhh what have I done? so I thought I'd just keep it quiet and hope nobody noticed.... lol!
I never for a second thought I'd make the final cut!!! (I mean have you seen the other 11!?!)
Ladies, you have no idea how much this means... THANKYOU!!

So... for the second part of the call, we have to pick a sketch from the last 3 months, and create something using it....
I went for one I didn't get chance to join in with originally....

SKETCH #57
And, here goes...no going back now..... this is my card...
I've rotated the sketch to fit my image better...


Close up of the gorgeous image!
Another close up...
Image -Noelle bearing gifts (mos digital pencil)
coloured with promarkers and colouring pencils
Papers - DCWV oldworld BG sugared and K&CO dictionary
'NOEL' cut with sizzix 'tina thinks youre cute' dies
Flower Prima 'got prints'
Metal swirls- Making Memories
Recycled elements - Ribbon from a clothes tag... and the card stock is watercolour paper torn from a pad, I used the torn edge for the strip across the top of the dictionary print, and wrapped some around the flower.
Rest is from stash....

Well I suppose all thats left to do is pop over to Sketch Saturday and get linked up!!! OMG I'm so nervous!!!
Thanks again ladies for this oppurtunity... and good luck to the other 11 amazing finalists!!
Thanks for looking!

Oh Paula, this is gorgeous! That image is so pretty and your colouring is perfect! I love all the little embellies, especially the bell! I was going to use this sketch, but ended up choosing another because the stamp I wanted to use fitted better! I love what you've done with it! Lots and lots of luck! Hugs, Simonne (SemSee)
