Joyful Wishes - September SFYTT

Hey there, just wanted to share a quick card I put together using this month's Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try. There's time left to play along, but just a smidge, so hurry on over to the Reverse Confetti blog for all the details and the link-up. Contest closes at noon CT on the 29th!

Here's the September sketch:

For my take on the sketch, I picked out some of the images from the adorable new Christmas Bear stamp set, stamped them on Reverse Confetti's Cloud White card stock, and did some quick and loose watercoloring using Zig Clean Color brush markers and a water pen. I absolutely LOVE Cloud White for watercoloring. Looks and feels like traditional card stock, but blends like watercolor paper. (For Copic coloring and general stamping, choose the Premier Polar White.)

My sentiment is from Sentimental Christmas, and the stitched- and pinked-edge circle die is from the Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts set.

I subbed a length of ribbon for the smaller rectangle panel on the sketch and tied on some string and jingle bells for the embellishment trio.

Stamps: Christmas Bear, Sentimental Christmas
Confetti Cuts Dies: Christmas Bear, Fa La La Circle 
Ink: Midnight
Paper: Cloud White, Premier Polar White, and RC Teal card stock; Very Merry 6x6 paper pad
