Sweet Sunday Season

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC88. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.

 I continued with my Christmas theme from last week for my card today and inked up my newest Who's That Girl set from MFT, Winter in the City. I picked her up a couple of weeks ago in the VIP package but didn't have a chance to get her inky until now. I paired her with papers from my Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather mini deck. I have to say, purple and red are not colours I would normally pair together but I really love the end result! I added white liquid applique to the trim on her coat and covered the snow with sugar Sparkly fluff. The lanterns have a little shine thanks to my clear Glaze pen.

I used my snowflakc die-namics and layered purple and cream then topped it with a cream brad. The black ruffled ribbon (which I picked up from the MFT booth at CHA) has been sitting patiently on my desk...it's so pretty that I haven't wanted to use it, but I indulged myself today. I love love LOVE the saying on this card...it's a little tough to see in the photo on the patterned paper, but it reads "Take time to enjoy the season". I think we could all take that advice to heart more often!  :-)

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