A NEW Sketch Challenge!

Yesterday I hinted that I made a card using a sketch from a very special new sketch challenge. And here it is! Wow, two posts in one day for me, that must be a record {scroll down for the Belli}. The sketch was made by my friend Jessica's DD - and it's FABULOUS! Check out Jessica's blog post for the back story. Of course I had to play along - oh to have been that talented when I was 8 years old! Here's Madelynn's original sketch:


I also took a close up/different angle picture of the main image because I had added a bunch of glitter to the stocking (I know, you can hardly believe I would add glitter!) and it adds some good dimension, especially the white. It's really hard to see it in the first picture though, so here you go:


(As always, click the pictures for the enormous version.) The stocking stamp is from Prickley Pear rubber stamps and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up!. I colored the stocking and all the treats in with my Copic markers and then added the glitter. You can hardly tell from the angle of the picture, but I used the scallop border punch on the skinny red piece and then added some white ribbon. The velvet bow was put on at the end and has the silver cord and metal edge tag coming off of it.

Thanks for visiting today!
