Sweet Sunday Wishes

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC158.

I used Pure Innocence Presents for You from MFT and created card #16 for Project Christmas 2012. I slacked a little the past couple of weeks so I'm trying to get back on the Christmas card wagon.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. I used some white liquid appliqué on her hat and glossed up her buttons and the heart with my clear glaze pen. I cut her out and popped her on the white embossed circle. I used my Circle STAX 1 and Circle STAX 2 Die-namics to cut out the layers then stitched them together. The Fishtail Flags STAX were perfect for cutting out the vertical strip from Wild Cherry card stock. The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Winter Park collection.

I used my Let it Snowflake Die-namics and the Button Quartet Die-namics for the snowflake embellishment. I used Sno Cone card stock for the light blue snowflake.

I kept the inside super simple, which helps keep this card nice and flat for mailing.


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

SO cute! I admire your drive to work on Christmas cards. That might be my least favorite holiday (for cards). Weird, I know.
