It's X-mas again - Merry Monday #49

It's X-mas for me again...LOL!

I'm keeping a promise I made to myself and that is to make xmas cards thoughout the year! It's so much fun to do xmas cards when it's not x-mas, less pressure that's for sure!!!

This week at Merry Monday the challenge is a sketch, here is my card:

And here is the sketch:

This image came pre-colored and it's from Dustin Pike. I love coloring, especially with Copic Markers but sometimes it's fun to spend the time designing  the card and playing with a sketch rather then coloring the image.

Here is a close up of the image and the sentiment. Unfortunately I don't remember where I got it, I do know it was a freebie, so a shout out to all you artists that do that, share your amazing talents with all of us!!! THANKS A BUNCH!!

** I remembered!!!  I was loking through my computer files and I found the sentiment in my Digi Doodle Shop folder..YAY!! **

For this card I used the a scallop square die and a small scalloped border die as well. I also added ribbon, a bow and some buttons.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Always Playing with Paper, Merry Monday #49, sketch
Christmas Card Challenges, #11 use scallops
No Matter which challenges, #6 Ribbons & Bows
Holly Jolly X-mas Challenge, use 2 dies/punches

Thanks for stopping by,

love & create ...with a smile :)

Hi! Your Santa and Rudolph still looked frazzled from Christmas last year, with their cute little crossed eyes, but how adorable! Love the way you have followed the sketch and your pretty Christmas colors.
