A Sketch and A Pocket


Happy Friday to you! Can you believe that we are about a week away from Christmas! Guess I better get my shopping done! Today being Friday also means new challenges over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something and this week both challenges will run for two weeks.

Our challenge this week at JM is a fabby sketch by our talented Mina! And it's one that I am sure I will use again. Be sure you include a Magnolia image on your card to be eligible for the prize which this week is sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund.

A couple of months ago I got these beautiful new Curio papers fro BG but I had yet to use them, so I broke those out for this card. I've distressed the edges with scissors and went for a vintage feel for this card. I colored the image with Copics and then cut her out and adhered her to a dry embossed layer. I've embellished with ribbon and lots of flowers and some pearls. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and was framed with vanilla hodgepodge from SU.

This card also fits at:
Magnolia Down Under: Red, brown, cream

At SS this week we are asking you to create "Something with a pocket or a tag" and we are being sponsored by Whiff Of Joy stamps!

For this card, I started with the Holiday Folly papers from Whimsy Stamps and then stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The pocket was created with my Big Shot and a Sizzix die and then I added the image to a tag to cover the tag and pocket challenge! The image was colored with copics and then highlighted with glitter. I finished up with some pearls, ribbon, and snowflakes. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Winter Letter Seals.

This card fits at:
Cute Card Thursday: One for the Kids
Copic Creations: Sparkle
Going Grey: Make it a tag
PaperKutz: Snowflake or Snowman
The Pink Elephant: Winter Wonderland
Stamptacular Sunday: Winter Wishes
Totally Gorjuss: Snow
