Gifts For You

Today's card features an adorable Stampavie Penny Johnson image, Gifts For You. I colored the image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The scarves and stockings are paper pieced. The patterned papers are all from Crate Paper's Snow Day collection. Other details include snowflake accents (Martha Stewart punch and MFT Let It Snowflake Die-namics) that have been glittered with Frosted Lace Stickles, liquid applique on the furry parts of Santa's suit, an open scallop border (another MFT Die-namics die), and a random sprinkling of bling.



The layout bears some resemblance {wink} to Jen's Sketch For You To Try for this week:




I modified that main circle panel to suit my image and adjusted the placement of the circle accents just a bit.

To play along with the sketch, just link up your creation to Jen's post. Remember to use keyword SFYTT when you upload to online galleries. This is the last weekend of the month, which means next weekend we'll have a brand-new guest designer getting sketchy with us. Will it be you? Play along and it could be!

Thanks for stopping by!
