Sweet Sunday Wishes

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC147.

I kept the layering ultra simple today and followed the sketch exactly...no flipping this week! LOL!!!

I used Uptown Girl Quinn in her Boots from Stamping Bella and squeezed in another Christmas card, which brings my total to 45 for Project Christmas 2011.

I coloured her with copics in earthy tones to coordinate with the patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas 6x6 pad. I love how this turned out! I added some tiny rhinestones to her coat for a little sparkle and white liquid appliqué to her hat. The sentiment (which is included with the image) was stamped onto kraft card stock that I cut out with the say what? die-namics from MFT. I toyed with adding a snowflake embellishment in the lower left corner area of the image panel but it didn't look right with the talk bubble above it. So, this card is completely naked of embellishments, and nice and thin to mail!

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.


Thanks for stopping by!

OMG I looooove how you colored Quinn! Mostly, I love how you cropped her so that only a portion fits into your image panel. You've cut off her comfy UGGs but the colors and conversation window are a great trade off. Girl, you've got me running to get that sentiment die. It looks fabulous here. And the rhinestone buttons are fantastic. Can you tell I love this card?
