You Warm My Heart

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC157.

I used Baby It's Cold Outside from MFT. This is an older winter themed Who's That Girl? set but I still love it! And that means this card makes #15 for Project Christmas 2012.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured most of it with copic markers. I paper pieced her coat with one of the patterns from the Crate Paper Peppermint collection. I added three tiny black rhinestones for the snowman's buttons and some white liquid appliqué on her boots.

I used the let it snowflake Die-namics to cut out the snowflake accent and the fishtail flags STAX Die-namics were perfect for the two flag accents. The pink and red colour combo was pulled right from the patterned paper, so I used pink lemonade and wild cherry for the layers along with black licorice for a pop under the image.

I hope you 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.
