It is Sunday so another fabulous sketch was given to us by Pam to follow at 365 Cards. Here is her sketch:
And here is what I was inspired to do:
When I first looked at the sketch and saw the line along the bottom edge, my first thought was to use my new Martha Stewart icicle punch. The card evolved around that. I took a piece of SU Cool Caribbean and punched the strip of icicles out. I was able to use a piece of paper from my new BG Eskimos Kisses paper pad. The hedgie image is from the Penny Black Holly Day Critters clear set. That was stamped on an extra nestie labels 3 piece. The image was colored with Copics and spica pens. The pink Noel is actually a snow flake die from Spellbinders Create a Flake 2 set. The ribbon is from my holiday stash and the snowflakes on the ribbon are from Hero Arts. As I laid the pieces in place on the paper it looked nice but sorta plain. I took out my Zig glue pen and outlined the icicles, the nestie label and the snowflake with glue and sprinkled micro-fine glitter over them. That looked much better.
Only three days left to go and I will have completed every challenge for the month of September at 365 Cards! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)
