Friday Sketchers Challenge

Hi, hope that everyone is in good health, and that you're having a lovely week so far! :) Today I'm going to share with you a card I made this weekend, following the lovely sketch that talented Mumur has created. You can find it on Friday's Sketchers challenge blog here. I used this lovely Sarah Kay image ... it is one of my most favourite!! These cuties are amazingly sweet!! I really had fun colouring them in ;)
Thank you Summer :0)

I used Papermania Naughty but Nice Christmas papers, and a piece of self coloured piece of tissue for layering the top left piece. I chose to distress all the layers, and I really liked the effect ♥

The main image is coloured with watercolours, and I used some glitter pens to highlight some details : their bows, the candle light glow, and the hollies.
I also used antique linen distress ink for their music papers, their shoes and dabbed around the image; after I roughly tore the edges for an antique feel. (Long sentence this!! lol)

If you would like to try this stamp for yourself (and you will not regret it!), you can purchase it at

As embellies, for the bottom corner I used a fely snowflake, highlighted with pink ink at the edges, a small pink rose, and two holly leaves at the back (Papermania).
It is quite an unusual combination, but I liked the final result. I'm good at these kind of combinations!! :)

For the top left, I used a piece of lace for a corner, then I topped it up with another felt snowflake. I pinned it in place with a silver star brad and a pink rhinestone.

I hope that you like it, thanks for looking and reading this post. We all have a reason to sing our thanks and praise to Jesus, like these sweet little "angels" are doing. He is God with us!!

I hope that you are joining us at the Cupcake Craft challenge Blog this week, we have a sketch for you, and we are looking forward for your creations.

Blessings ♥
