Be of Good Cheer


Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week the wonderful and talented Joanne is our hostess with a sketch challenge. Don't you love it?! 


I had this digital image and sentiment from Power Poppy all printed out and die cut weeks ago. They seemed just perfect for this layout, though I rotated it 90 degrees and then used the mirror image. I hope you can still see the sketch! 


I'm also playing along with the Santa challenge at Merry Monday, and 'anything goes Christmas' at Christmas Card Challenges, where this is their farewell challenge. I'm always sad to see a challenge blog come to an end.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Glittering Santa Digital Stamp Set (Power Poppy)
Card Stock: Solar White, Desert Storm (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Have a Merry Christmas (Carta Bella)
Colored Pencils: Prismacolor
Tools: Big Shot, Circles Dies (Sizzix), Stitched Oval Dies (Lawn Fawn), Femme Frame Dies (Mama Elephant)
Accessories: Linen Thread (Stampin' Up)


Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

This is another beautiful card, Sandy! I love the color combination (some of my faves!) and it really is a beautiful layout for the sketch! Crystal

Sandy you are the QUEEN of colouring - this card is exquisite! I love the rather vintage Santa decoration - he reminds my of my Mum's Christmas decorations when I lived at home as a child. Fabulous!
