Sketch Challenge ~ 9

..is the challenge today at A Spoonful of Sugar. It is yet another beautiful sketch by Katharina!! (AND I know I am hoping that she still composes sketches while staying busy with her new ventures:) I really had fun playing with this one and since I got new stamps and papers just for Christmas I decided to go with a Christmas card!! If I could keep this up it would be fantastic because I am ALWAYS struggling to get them finished:C The paper is a vintagey paper pack from K & Co so I went with the Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas set for my sentiment. I wouldn't normally do these colors but the more I look at it the more I like it!! I am one of those people that is a stickler for the classic green and red but this year that may change!!

Papers: K & Co, Bazzil CS
Inks: Distressed inks, Archival's Jet Black
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Micheal's, flower ~ Prima, Snowflake charm ~ Alpha Stamps


Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening:)
