Lili's Creative Ribbon Girl Sketch and Stash

Sketch N Stash have a free choice of their sketches week to celebrate their 100th challenge and I chose #55 from their catalogue.  With so many Christmas cards to make and so few days to make them (are you reading this Faye?), I need all the help I can get to inspire me.

I coloured my image with Copics and added liquid applique to her fur hat and trim.  Her mits and scarf, shopping bag and the parcel ribbons all have Sakura sparkle added and the snow has been Stickled.  My snowflake is a combo of Marianne and Nesties dies topped with a MS punched flake and my DP is my favourite K&Co to which I added an embossed silver Stampin Up Medallion Stamp. This is a very recent acquisition and you can expect to see much more of it!!! The slider is a new one I picked up in the States.  And this is the sketch I chose.

My image is a lovely LOTV stamp called Dropping the Shopping as I am also entering my card into
Lili's Little Fairies "Snow is Falling" challenge;
Creative Card Crew #23 "Silver and Blue"; and 
The Ribbon Girl's "Add Sparkle"

And while I was adding my photo to this post, I took the liberty of replacing the one in my last post with a marginally better one.  Taking photos at 2.00 in the morning just doesn't make for a good picture and the flash burn in the original photo was really annoying me.

Hi Lesley, thanks for dropping by my blog today, and for the comments you've left recently - I do appreciate them.

Been looking round your blog - your colouring is so nice, I think my fave image is the toy soldier further down the page - really love how you did that.

This is a gorgeous card, and the embossed medallion on the DP is a fab touch and makes such a difference. So lovely!

Love her little blue coat. The ribbon and slide look like a dog's collar. Perfect embellishment.
