"Merry Christmas"

I love sketch challenges, I think they make me think! As a newly 'retired' senior I hope it will keep my brain cells going! I am entering this card at Priscillastyles Sketch Challenge. I love to play in their challenges and the DT is great. My image is from Lilly of the Valley. He is a cute little guy. I colored him with Copics and cut the image out with my Creative Memories circle cutter. I let his feet extend beyond the circle to help him look as if he was walking out of the card.  I framed him with my Nestabilities and added lace to my red half circle. I added red rhinestones and glitter to his hat to add a little bling. I did move the placement of the sentiment at it fit my card better at the top rather than the bottom. This is a fun sketch and I will definitely use it again. You can enter this challenge at http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ in case you want to join in the fun! I am also entering this at http://letscreatechallenges.blogspot.com/2010/08/lets-kick-off.html a brand new challenge blog it looks like it will be lots of un so check it out!
