Christmas with Woofie

Christmas with Woofie - I am trying for the Design Team of Christmas Challenges with Sketches. Isn't that a great idea!!! There are several other year round Christmas challenge blogs out there, but none that are devoted to just sketches. Now I will know where to go to for my Christmas sketches.

I was so excited about trying out for this team that I made 2 cards using their sketch. For my first card I used DP by Paper Studio. I love that it has 5 designs of paper that all coordinate with each other.
Here is the sketch for the DT try outs. Isn't it a great sketch! Very easy to work with.

I used ribbon cut from a bolt at Joanne's. The gemstone Joy is by Marsell's. And the Poinsettia is by Making Memories. The pearl spray is some loss strings of pearls that were some stray things that were in the bottom of a box.

My image is by none other then the fabulous Michelle Perkett. The image is called Woofie in Snow. I colored Woofie with Copic's, then cut the image with a Spellbinder's Nestie.

For my second card I used DP from the Winter Wonder pack by DCWV. I love the shades of blue that they used. The snowflake DP is Vintage Snowflake by Paper Studio. The other DP is not DP at all. I dry embossed and sanded a piece of Coordinate paper. I inked all the edges with Ranger Distress inks Blue China. I was afraid that it would be to light to show, but I think it was just the right amount. I used 3 eyelets, a feather, a Prima flower, and gemstones from my stash.

My sentiment came with the Winter Wonder pack.

I hope that the creative ladies at Christmas Challenges with Sketches like my cards, and that you will join in the fun and have all of your Christmas Cards done early.
