Cute Card Thursday #139 - A sketch by Susan


It's time for another Cute Card Thursday Challenge. This weeks challenge is a sketch by our talented designer, Susan. Here is her sketch...

...and here is my card...

Stamps: Willow With Cookies (Whiff of Joy)
Paper: A Country Christmas (The Paper Studio)
Ink: Distress Ink, Memento, Copics
Accessories: Spellbinders Fancy Tags, flowers, lace, buttons

I used a blend of  Copics and Distress Inks to color Willow With Cookies. I have found it is actually easier to color this image with distress inks because of the detail. But, I still like the blend.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the DP, then mounted it to a Tim Holtz Ideology fragment. I then mounted that onto an altered  Spellbinders Fancy Tag.

I have had these Christmas buttons for a while, and loved them with this image I needed to tone down the color, so colored the buttons with W7 Copics. 

Here is a closeup of my flowers.

7 Kids College Fund has some wonderful Christmas stamps, from Magnolia's to Whiff of Joy. With Christmas right around the corner, go to 7 Kids College Fund to get your Christmas card supplies.
