Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Happy Wednesday greetings everyone! It's time for another fantastic sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  This week we're sponsored by the wonderful Sally Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique. She's offering the winner of the challenge this week 6 free digi stamps from her store! Thanks Sally Ann - your images are adorable and your prize is very generous!

 Here's the sketch this week from our talented Arlana Patten. Lots of fun layers to show off your papers with this one! I loved using the sketch this week for my card that features the "Christmas George" image from Digi Stamp Boutique.

I colored George with Copic markers and added lots of sparkle to the image with Stickles. The image includes the present, which I cut out separately and added it as the embellishment in the sketch.  The papers used here are from last year's stash of Christmas papers by American Crafts "Merrymint" collection.

We'd love to have you join in the fun this week at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge. Just follow the link to the blog and a chance to win some wonderful images.  Along the way, hop on by the design team blogs for some creative inspiration - design team links are on my left sidebar.

Looking forward to what you create!  Thanks for stopping by!

P.S.  Take a look at the other card I posted today below - a special birthday card for my daughter.  I think you'll be delighted by what you see!

Hi Sharon, love your card it's such a great image. What a good idea cutting the gift out and using it separately, I might borrow that idea in the near future. Love your papers it's amazing what you stash away.
Take care and have a great week.

Just adorable! I love that you separated the images to make two fabbie ones!! I love the Stickles, I need to maybe buy some more as I really like how it turned out on your card.

Have a great week.
