Sketch Saturday #288

It's Saturday and time for another sketch from 
this week sponsored by the uber cool

Our own Marzena is responsible for this week's sketch and I loved using it with this pre-coloured LOTV image to which I added a little of my own colour.  There were a number of aqua coloured postmarks on the Craftworks Card background DP which I was trying to match with the DCWV Old World Winter paper panel and the little girl's coat.  It was only after I had applied everything to the background that I realised I had pretty much covered up all of the aqua post marks with which I was trying to coordinate!  Good thing I coloured the boys scarf in red and green then, eh?  I cut my image using a Stampin Up die and piercing stencil and I really like this shape.  A memory box bow in Kraft and some little wooden snowflakes together with a new sentiment stamp from are the only embellishments.
Do share some love with my fellow Saturdays and come and play along with Marzena's lovely sketch.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend -  use some red
Hanna and Friends - Christmas
The Ribbon Girl - Ho Ho Ho Christmas

I've done that before with DPs - everything looks great, you've matted your DPs then you put on your image and bam the part you planned to show is hidden!
Well regardless Leslie I think your card is lovely
Have a great weekend
