Sweet Sketch Wednesday - SSW81

Only a couple more days before Christmas and I'm getting as giddy as kid about now! I love the final days and the hustle and bustle of getting everything ready for Christmas day. And speaking of acting like a kid, this card fondly reminds me of winter's past (way past!) where Christmas vacations were filled with hours and hours of ice skating with my friends.  This adorable image that brings back those memories is from Fresh Brewed Designs, our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

We have another wonderfully creative sketch this week from Arlana. I love the interesting look and the layers that this sketch has - especially with the oval inside the circle. We'd love to have you find a few moments and join the challenge this week. The grand prize winner will receive three free digi stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs - you don't want to miss your chance for that!

The image is called "Ice Skating Angel Cake" and I've used Copics to color her. The papers I've coordinated the image colors with are from Webster's Pages "Sweet Season" collection. I used Nesties to cut out the ovals, circles and the large snowflake which was sparkled up with chunky glitter. A few buttons and some stickles along the oval edges and trim on Angel Cake's jacket and hat are the finishing touch.

Get some more inspiration from my talented team mates at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog - you'll love what you see there.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon, every week your cards amaze me. I love your choice of papers...the one gives a ribbed knit look that adds so much to the wintery scene. I really love the snowflake papers. The glitter, stickles, buttons and snowflakes really make everything just pop! I do hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
