A Sketch Challenge for Sassy Cheryls

Thank you Jackie for the sketch challenge for this week on the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog. As usual, I'm to the last minute getting something created. With a sketch provided, it was one less thing than my overloaded brain had to deal with.

I have actually had this image colored for a couple of weeks. It's called the Tree Trimmers and can be found at the Sassy Cheryl's store HERE. I was practicing with my PrismaColor pencils, so no Copics on this one. WOOHOO!!!!

I of course laid out the card using my Silhouette Cameo(and no I don't own stock in the company, but it's one of the most versatile and easy to use machines on the market IMHO). The papers are from Just So Scrappy 2's Santa Baby kit. The holly strips and the poinsettia are cut files from the Silhouette Online Store. I broke the strip into layers in order to color the leaves and the berries. I copied a couple of the leaves and berried and resized them for my corner embellishment.

Now off to clean up the super mess I created just trying to get this card put together.


  1. WOW Shirley. . .you are going to town with those PC pencils. This is gorgeous! I LOVE the hint of red around the image and the little Holly leaves are a super fun touch. It's perfect!!!
