Sketch Challenge Card

Fun news!!! My ornament project was chosen as part of the Holiday Carnival over at Craft Critique. ( Check it out! They are featuring tons of cool projects for the next few days.

Not so fun news: My two submissions were not picked up by Cards Magazine. Boohoo! Back to the drawing board.

Well, I actually did the sketch challenge on SCS today. I haven't had time to do anything lately besides prep for Christmas and my son's birthday. After a crazy wild party last night, I decided I would do a little stamping just for me.

This sketch was fun. I used the layout and just tweaked it a bit (cause I do not follow directions well!)

The images are from My Favorite Things (Winter Blast) I stamped them and punched them out. The bgs are all embossed using the snowflake embossing folder in the cuttlebug. I added sparkles to the sentiment and snowflakes with my Sakura gellyroll pen. I also added twinkle stickers (a muse) to the snowflakes. The images are colored with Copics and Stickles are enhancing the snow areas.

Lots of sparkle on this...irl!

I just found out that my sweet sister in law lost her father. Keep her and her family in your prayers.

Last chance to enter to win blog candy...Random.cara picks tomorrow morning (Thursday).

Thanks for stopping by!
