I was rather struck by a sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy, and this is what happened...

All of the supplies are from like for ever's Wish List kit, plus a few sequins from my stash.

I trimmed the wood veneer as the arrow was pointing the wrong way.  They are very easy to cut, and I added a bit of inktense pencil to the cut edge to darken it.  I stuck a pin to the back to make a little flag.  I trimmed out a couple of reindeer - I just love this sheet of patterned paper!  (I have/had five sheets!!)

The background is a beautiful combination of art bars, Shimmerz, inktense pencils and embossed cardstock.  I try to photograph the shimmer every time I use shimmerz - I'm yet to catch on camera what I see in real life.

I decided I needed to stitch the large alphas down.  Rather than just one lonely line of stitching I added a few lines - the paper doesn't need the stitching to hold it down, but I like the effect.
