ABC Christmas Challenge - S & T are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...this month Lisa is the host and we have two fun themes for you:

'S is for Sketch'
(Use a sketch from a current challenge)
&
'T is for Trio'
(Feature three of something)

Our sponsors this month are:

Prize - 4 Images of the Winner's Choice!

&

Prize - £10 Voucher!

I followed the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday challenge on my first card:

I decided to make an all white card, adding some texture with some embossing folders (Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots', 'Feather Illusion' (border) and Sizzix 'Snowflakes'). I cut the snowflakes using Marianne Designs dies, and the sentiment was made using stamps from the 'Graffiti' alphabet set by Paper Smooches.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
My second card features a 'trio' of chickens...it's a stamp by Penny Black called 'Par Avion' which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The sentiment stamp is from a Christmas with Barkley set by Crafter's Companion.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies...including our lovely new member Sharon...please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
