Sketch Saturday ~ Happy New Year ~ Reach for the Stars

Sketch Saturdays - Page 143 Happy Saturday! I have my first Sketch Saturday card of 2010 to show you.  It is the turn of the lovely Simonne to host our challenge and she has created a beautiful sketch for us all!

Our sponsor this week is Your Next Stamp which is a Canadian company. YAY!

I have used another of Mo Mannings’s images today. I knew that this would be perfect for New Year and it fit Simonne’s sketch so well! I printed the image out twice. Once on my Neenah paper and once on just regular paper. I cut out the image from the regular paper and used it as a mask when I airbrushed my colored image. I didn’t even use patterned paper on this card. GASP! I used the winter snowflake Cuttlebug folder to create this nice background. The folder was not wide enough so I ran it through twice to cover the whole surface of my paper. The ribbon hides where the two edges meet.
