Sweet Sunday Merry

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC163. Pssssst....when you're done reading this post, scroll down to my previous post because I used this sketch for a birthday card too.

I used à la modes Candy Cane Kisses to create card #21 for Project Christmas 2012.

I paired patterned paper from the Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder collection with Wild Cherry, Pink Lemonade, Fossil, Hot Fudge and Sno Cone. The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I used a red Spica glitter pen on the candy cane and the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics was perfect for cutting out the sentiment tab.

How about this fabulous snowflake embellishment? I used the Let It Snowflakes Die-namics to cut out Puff Cloud White felt and Sno Cone card stock then layered it with a coordinating Sno Cone button. LOVE the new coordinating buttons from MFT!!! The Icicle Border Die-namics was perfect for the horizontal element and I added some Shore Twine for good measure.

I kept the inside simple by just stamping another sentiment from the set along with the image of the girl in light pink.

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. And you'll notice, the list is a little longer this week because we have new team members!!! Welcome to the team!!
