A Sketch and One for the Holidays

Good Morning All!

Hope you're having a great week. We've had a good one so far and today is ballet day with my daughter which always makes for a fun morning! All those cutie pies in pink from head to toe!

I have two cards to share with you today. One is for my GDT with Whiff of Joy Challenges and the other is for some DT work with Doodle Palace and Paper Maniac.

Whiff of Joy GDT

This is my last card as a GDT with Whiff of Joy Challenges. I want to thank everyone for having me, I've really enjoyed designing for the challenges with these sweet images.

This week's challenge is a sketch by the wonderfully talented Rach! It's a fun sketch, but I did change the oval to a circle. I don't have any Nesties for layering ovals, boo hoo. I've used these K and Company vintage papers with flowers. I also created my own patterned paper with the bluish layer and some Layers of Color stamps in flowers and hearts. I embellished with Prima roses, metal flowers, ribbon and a charm, and gel pen faux stitching.

Paper Maniac/Doodle Palace

This is my Doodle Palace/ Paper Maniac card. The image is Bearly Santa from Doodle Palace which is available now for downloading. It's been colored with Copics and then I used a bunch of fun products available from Paper Maniac to complete the card.

The paper is Imaginisce Polar Expressions which is double sided and some of the pages are complete with glitter. It's super cute and really nice quality! I've paired it with some SU! cardstock in Olive and White. I embellished with some silver brads, grosgrain ribbon, and a couple buttons. This card also fits the Christmas challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar. You can see my card ingredients and all the links to these great products at the Paper Maniac store below!

Thanks for dropping by, have a great day. Happy Stamping!
