Sweet Sunday Elves

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC86. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

This is the last sketch in the "bar napkin" series that Nancy McKinney created for us back in July at CHA, and she'll be playing along again with us this week. Thanks for all the fun sketches Nancy!

I went the Christmas route for my card today and pulled out the sweet Give a Little set from The Cat's Pajamas. Isnt' this penguin just darling!?! I stuck with reds for the colouring but jazzed them up by using my red Spica glitter pen on the ornament and my clear glaze pen on the light bulbs. I also used some white liquid appliquee on his hat. The patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather mini deck, paired with blush red dark and island mist light solids. The sentiment panel separated from the circular accent looked too bizarre to me so I connected them...I know...I cheated a little, but that's ok, right?

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now let's go see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.
