Lothian Crafts–2 A Sketch

For our challenge this month at Lothian Crafts we have a sketch for you to follow. As usual you can rotate the sketch if you like, as I have done. I moved it one turn to the right.

The prize on offer is a lovely Marianne Die of a tree

Lothian 2 Main

This is the sketch I followed

Lothian and here is the die on offer

For my card I used some lovely paper I have had from K&Co for a few years now, and chopped it down to 82 square. The image is a Crafters Companion SWALK stamp, coloured with promarkers. The black mat is a spellbinders die, but the rest of the diecuts are all from Marianne dies.

The large silver mat is called Marianne Square Frames LR0234, the snowflakes are from the Marianne Collectables Winter Village range COL1330 and the tree is one of my favourite tree dies LR0136. All of these are usually available, at a really good price from Lothian Crafts Online.
