Paper Players Sketch Challenge 11

DSCF8824

Morning, peeps!  Today, Lesley has a lovely sketch for us to use:

I love square cards; I always feel it’s a bigger canvas on which to create!!!  I just got some new goodies from the Holiday Mini, so I thought I would make a cute Christmas card….this is probably more work than I would normally put into one of my cards, but I’ll save this one for someone special:

This uses the new set, Merry Crittermas, along with the jumbo wheel Jolly Jingles….I usually don’t go for these little whimsical animal images, but I thought this one was kinda cute.  This actually uses two images.  I cut a mask from a Post-It Note to cover the critters and stamped the tree behind it.  Doesn’t it make a cute scene?  I just don’t know if I colored them “correctly”!! I used blender pens and ink pads, so the coloring is not as intense as if I had used Copics, but I wanted it to be all SU.  I trimmed down the Modern Label punch by cutting it in half and fitting it a little more closely to my small oval sentiment.  I added some snowy sparkle to the snowflakes and ground, too:

And stamped the little sentiment and some snowflakes on the inside:

Oh what a really cute card you have come up with here. I saw this Stamp Set and though do I need it or not, and then I thought "no" I don't need it but I "have" to have it. It is just so darned cute. I love that you have the Little Critters decorating the Tree, wonderful creation. Love your coloring. Great job.
