Dear Santa

Happy Saturday! Time for another fantastic sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday!!!

I pulled out this adorable image that my dear friend Rachel gave to me and colored her up to coordinate with patterned paper from the Tinsel and Twigs collection by The Girls' Paperie. I think it might be my favorite Christmas paper this year... I just love the patterns and shades of color. And, of course, how can you go wrong when you have an image as adorable as this? It's called Royal Greeting by Penny Black. Love love love!

The greeting is by SRM. I punched the holly with my Martha Stewart Crafts punch. The pearls are by Kaisercraft. I added a bit of Stampendous white Fun Flock to her santa hat, and dotted all the snowflakes with my Signo white gel pen, just to give them a tiny bit of dimension. I inked the edges of the patterned paper with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink to give them more definition.  I hope you likey!

Why not come along and play with us this week? Take a wee break from the hustle bustle of the holiday season and make a card for someone special? We'd love to have you!

Be sure to nip over to the Sketch Saturday blog to see what the rest of the design team ladies have come up with. They are sure to delight! Plus, you'll have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to spend at Simon Says Stamp!
