Sketch - Christmas in July - Day 2

Today is the second day of the fun Christmas in July event over at Catch the Bug. One week, 7 challenges, different prizes are up for grab for those who enter one or all the challenges - you can read more about it here.

Today's challenge is a sketch. I kept my card flat and postage friendly, masking the image (colored with Promarkers, gold gel pen, stickles glitter glue and WOS) and heat embossing a Christmas sentiment before I started sponging the background with blue DI. I used scalloped border dies from Dienamics to cut the top and bottom before gluing them back in place. A few sequins and that's about it.

This card is also for:
ABC Christmas Challenge - 'N' is for No Rules
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Let's See a Christmas Tree and/or Make it Cute (I chose cute)

Lovely blue background for this cute angel-bear, and love the detail of scalloped borders, they remember the clouds and add some interest! Perfect little sparkling addons, as always your card has an elegant touch !!!
Have a Super Sunday!

Super cute!!! Th blue background really makes the little bear stand out. The inlaid die cut border is a stroke of genius, Pia. I'll be CASEing on that, for sure.

I like your interpretation of the sketch - the placement is all there but you've avoided obvious circles etc. Your background is the perfect setting for this angelic bear.

Mimi said...

2 things: I love that this is postage-friendly, and I love the way you have added dimension with the scalloped piece, yet kept the color consistent!
