Sweet Sunday Flurry of Love

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC150. Just a reminder, the Sweet Sunday Sketches are every two weeks now so you have plenty of time to play along.

I made a Christmas card...card #3 for Project Christmas 2012. I really love inking up my winter images all throughout the year, and it's so productive to get cards made ahead of time.
Pin It

I used the adorable Pure Innocence Flurry of Love set from MFT and turned the sketch into a 5.25" square card. The patterned papers are from the Echo Park Winter Park 6x6 pad.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I added plenty of bling for the snow. The red accent was cut out with the larger banner from the first place award ribbon die-namics but it was a little too short so I simply cut it in the middle and pulled the two ends apart until it was the right size. You'd never know it though, because the "mechanics" are hidden under the image panel. I also added a decorative bracket border using the solid bracket border 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.

So sweet Karen! I love your color combo and all the rhinestones you've used! I should join in on the Christmas card challenge, maybe that way I'd actually have enough made by the time Christmas comes.
