Thank you to all who participated last week over at Friday Sketchers, it was so cool to see all the different interpretations of my sketch. There were so many beautiful cards. I tried to comment on as many as I could! This week it is my dear & super-talented friend Tanja who is hosting and she has a gorgeous sketch for us all. Our sponsor this week is Magnolia-licious!
Over at the Wags ’n Whiskers Challenge it was my turn to pick the challenge. I thought that given the time of the year….a card with traditional Christmas colors (red & green) might be one that we all might NEED to use!
I wanted to use Ansley’s Surprise and give it a Christmas theme. All coloring was done with Copic Markers. The gift box and lid were paper-pieced and the background was airbrushed with my Copic system. I added Shimmerz in Sky Blue on the wings and Candlelight on the ribbon. Both these colors and many more are available at Stamp & Create.
