Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Sketch Design!!!

It's time for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge, and our wonderful Hostess Jackie has chosen one of my favorite Challenge themes, a sketch, it takes half of the work process out of the challenge for me :)  Gotta love that!!! I chose Wind up Santa for my card:

I love the colors of Christmas they are so bright and inviting. Red and Green.  I love to add polka dots for a visual bit of interest. Have I mentioned that I also LOVE snowmen!!! The image was colored with copic markers and airbrushed the sky and ground for highlights.  I used ruffled ribbon instead of bands for the cross bands of the sketch.  The brad and mistletoe punch were added to highlight the cross section of the ribbon. 

I inverted the brads in the upper left corner instead of having them as shown to match the contour of the dp, you gotta do what you gotta do with the paper you are working with, a little diversion from the sketch is okay, it still had 3 dots....that's my story and I am sticking to it :) 

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards to see what they created for the sketch challenge.  To play along with us, grab a Sassy image, the one I used is in the bargain bin for under a dollar, so no excuses and Cheryl has several new Christmas images perfect for your Christmas cards, yes, it is time to get busy on them!!! Once you have created your sketch card enter it in the Challenge for a chance to win 2 images in the random drawing, remember you must now use a Sassy Cheryl's image to enter. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great creative day!!!
