Murphy Christmas Stocking

Welcome back! Can you believe it's already midweek? That means it's the start of another sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and you will love this fun and simple design.

Arlana does such a great job with these sketches! This may look simple but it makes for a terrific card with the layers and integrated embellishment.  I just love how it looks and this will be my new go-to layout for rectangle images.

Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week and we appreciate the incredible support from Sally Ann each month here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  The Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week will receive six digi images from Digi Stamp Boutique - a very generous prize!

For my card  I chose this darling Murphy dog all caught up in his Christmas stocking.  I love the sweet face of this cutie and he was brought to life with Copic markers, lots of stickles, glitter gel pen and of course some terrific papers from KaiserKraft that were in my stash.  The ornament embellishments were cut out of one of the papers in the pad.

The design team has used a whole variety of digis from Digi Stamp Boutique to inspire you this week. Just head over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and take a peek then join us in the challenge.  We love to see what you do with the sketches week after week.

Thanks for stopping by!
