Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Sketch #45


When I found the Just Christmas and Birthday Cards challenge blog I thought it would get me making a Christmas card every week and I would be well ahead in the lead up to Christmas! Unfortunately I haven't always managed to play along and the Christmas goodies are starting to show up in the shops - the pressure is ON!!!

It's school holidays here in Melbourne - which means I get 2 weeks off work too - and some time to play!!! I love the sketch this week from Tanja - and I'm really happy with the way my card worked out.

I've used another fabulous digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Choir - I love the multi-cultural feel of this little group - harmoniously singing together - wish the world could be the same!!! I have a few of Mo's images now - they are just fabulous!!!! I've paired it with some retired SU DP, Real Red and Handsome Hunter CS. The sentiment is from SU's Snow Swirled set and the star brads are from my stash. Once again I've used my Touch and Copic markers to colour.
