Handing Out Candy Canes

Hi there fans, followers and bloggers! It's mid-week and time for another terrific challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

We have this sketch to play with this week. A fabulous sketch that goes together pretty quickly, has plenty of layers (you all know I love the layers) and room for plenty of embellishments.

And our wonderful sponsor this week is Sassy Cheryl's who is providing a $5 gift certificate to the Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week. Yay! 

For my card, I chose this adorable snowman digi "Handing Out Candy Canes" that you can find HERE in the Sassy Cheryl's Store.  He came to life with the help of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I carefully cut out around the areas of the image that I knew would extend beyond the circle diecut - I love the look this provides.  The papers are My Mind's Eye "12 Days of Christmas" collection and the divine sparkly green cardstock is by Recollections.  I love that glittery paper!

We all love Sassy Cheryl's images and my Sweet Sketch Wednesday design teamies are showing off their talent with Sassy Cheryl's digis in amazing ways. You'll want to pop on over the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and check them out.

Thanks for stopping by!
