Sweet Sunday Friendship {SSSC152}

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC152.

This sketch is wide open for interpretation and I had so many ideas, but I landed on making card #8 for Project Christmas 2012.
Pin It

I used Pure Innocence Merry Kissmas from My Favorite Things. It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. I added white liquid appliqué to both their hats but sprinkled glitter on her hat before I heat the liquid appliqué. I did a tiny bit of paper piecing on her skirt. The patterned papers are from the Fancy Pants Winterland 6x6 paper pad. The colours are quite muted in this collection and I was a little worried it would be too bland, but I love the result of these soft colours with pops of hot fudge.

I cut out the polka dot strip using the wonky scallop border Die-namics. The snowflake accents were cut out using the let it snowflake Die-namics. The pink layer is bubblegum felt and the blue layer is from the patterned paper pack, topped off with a brown brad.

On the inside I couldn't resist using this darling piece of patterned paper with the row of hanging mittens. All I needed to do was stamp the sentiment.

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.
