It's a Sketch

This week on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, Anne-Marije delivered a sketch for us to work with. I am constantly amazed that one sketch can be turned into so many cards, that look so different. I also love working with sketches, and after not being able to participate in the last couple of challenges, I was so in on this one. I love this sketch because it's so versatile, and I've already done two cards with it. No question of what images to use, I am so into the Winter Cuties. Check them out at the Phindy's Place Store.

For my first card for the challenge, I chose this adorable image called Miss Chrissy Tree. I colored her with my Copics finishing up the ornaments with my Spicas. The papers was left over from Christmas Open House invitations a few years back. The Gingerbread men were the border of the paper and were perfect for my center trip. I decided that since she was looking like a Christmas tree, I'd use my Cricut and MTC software to cut the image in the shape of a Christmas tree. I also cut the poinsettas from a free svg file that I got from My Cricut Scrapbooking. The sentiment is courtesy of Create with TLC.

Thanks for stopping by. I have a second card just waiting to be blogged.
