January Challenge!

Happy new year everyone! Welcome to the first of our challenges for 2015!
Firstly, thank you to everyone who found the time to play along with our December challenge, and we hope that everyone that couldn't will be able to join us this month.

We thought we would ease you all into the new year with a nice, gentle challenge - a sketch! And this month's beautiful sketch has been designed by our very own DT member Amanda Hartmann. So the challenge is simple - use the sketch to inspire your own creation, and don't forget to include a handmade embellishment somewhere on your layout. (It doesn't have to be made by you!)

Here is the sketch...

And this month's sponsor is none other than...

I am sure many of you would already know who Burdy's Embellies is, but for those who don't, Burdy's belongs to me (Vicki Burdon). I will tell you more about Burdy's Embellies on another day, but for now you can find Burdy's

Don't you love the way one sketch can produce such a great variety of work? We are looking forward to seeing how all of you interpret the sketch too! Entries need to be linked up on the blog by midnight, 31st January. :)
