Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Sketch Challenge #37


This week's fabulous sketch for the Just Christmas and Birthday Cards challenge is from Anne. I decided to do a square card this week - I'm loving the look of these and it fit the sketch better, but they aren't as easy to file away in my box for later - or to get envelopes for! This is actually 5-3/4" square as it fits our Aussie A4 size better.

My image and sentiment are from a retired SU set called Sassy and Seasonal. It's a great little set because there are a few different things Miss Sassy can pile onto her sled. She reminds me a little of the Bellas too - whom I think are cute! Today she's pulling her tree home on her sled - although the way she's dressed I'm surprised some handsome young man hasn't offered to help, I certainly don't dress like this to get a tree - LOL.

I've actually cut the tree out and popped it up on Dimensionals - originally because I wasn't sure it would fit in the nestie oval - but in the end the effect is better anyway. The background is stamped in Real Red using the snowflake from Winter Post and then cuttlebugged with my Swiss Dots folder. The little Garden Green snowflake has been cut in my CB using a CB die. I've coloured using my Sketch markers and blinged it up with Dazzling Diamonds and red rhinestones.

Hope you're all having a fabulous week - wherever you are!

What a cool sketch... and what a cool interpretation. I love the background... white with the red random snowflake images and then put through the swiss dots CB folder. Excellent! and the image is sweet and sassy for sure. I'm certain a hapless young man arrived moments after this "photo" was taken to help her with her tree. :-)

Warm greetings from Sunny So Cal, where we are in the low 100's today.
