Christmas at Phindy's


Hello.  I am back with a third card today. I am all over the seasons today....first a fall card, then Halloween, and now a Christmas card for Phindy's Place Challenge. Her challenge is to make a Christmas card. I used her digi image "Back to Nature" and colored it with Copics, sponged the sky with Memento Summer Sky ink, and added 2 kind of stickles for snow. The image was cut with oval die and matted on a scalloped oval
of red. I used a sketch from Card Patterns shown below. Using  a base of red,  I added mats of Pattern Papers from BasicGrey Figgy Pudding and did a scalloped edge using Fiskars punch. Finished with a sentiment of an unknown source stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and cut with small scalloped oval die. Added some green rhinestones for a bit of bling.
Challenges:
Phindy's Place Challenge: Theme is Christmas
Card Patterns: Sketch #133 below.
Critter Sketch: Recipe challenge-Use 1 image, 2 different pattern papers, 3 embellishments, and 1 sentiment.
                        Card happens to follow recipe.
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Creature comforts. Think my little raccoon and bunny count for the challenge?



I enjoy all your comments.
Thank you. Theresa

Wow, you are on a roll today! This is another cute one. My purple idea didn't work out so I scrapped it! But I do have a card to post today for What If Wednesday and Stampin' B's.
