Last night I made two cards but didn’t have time to share. Tonight I will share the first one which is for the sketch challenge at Cheerful Sketches and the Anything Goes plus a sentiment at Penny Black and More Challenge.


This card was a challenge. I’m nearing the end of my Basic Grey Jovial pad and don’t care for most of the full size papers left and have tons of 2 inch strips to use up.  This combination of papers is starting to grow on me after looking at it a few more times.   Then I had an issue with the stamp and had to draw the gift in at the bottom. I do love how I colored the girl though 🙂  The teal was fun to do.


2015 Card 69 - Penny Black Mimis Christmas


Once I finished assembling the card, I decided it still needed something so I added Platinum stickles to some of the ornaments and then Star Dust to the girl’s hat & coat trim and the rest of the ornaments.


Here is the sketch I used~
