Sweet Sunday Snowboarder

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC142.

Karen created yet another fabulous sketch for us this week. I'm sure I'll use it over and over, but for this card I flipped it upside down so I could use the horizontal strip as snow.

I used the adorable new Pure Innocence Snowboard Boy from MFT. This little guy totally reminds me of my nephews, all decked out in their ski gear. I think this is going to be the perfect card for one of their birthdays in the new year.

There's lots of paper piecing on this image and the rest is coloured with copics. The patterned papers are all from the Echo Park Wintertime collection. I used the new wonky scallop border die-namic and some white felt to create the moguls. The snowflake accent was done with the medium size of the let it snowflake die-namics and the sentiment is stamped on the notched tag die-namic.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

There's so much to love about this card! Totally love the sketch upside down...it's a perfect fit for the moguls, the embossing folder for the snow backdrop is awesome and you always find the best design paper to paper piece on your projects! Love this!
