Sketch Challenge at Retro Rubber

Hello Everyone!  I am thrilled to  have again won  the opportunity to be a guest designer at the Retro Rubber challenge blog. The challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge, shown in the graphic above.  The fabulous ladies have asked me to join them for this challenge using a stamp that is at least 1 year or old.    Please visit their blogs to check out their great designs.
 Since I have been working on Holiday Cards, I decided to use the Sketch with an old 1999 Inkadinkado (discontinued)  stamp of "Snowman Family" from Michael's  by Alma Lynne Designs.
I used a bunch of Copics to color the Family after stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on White CS. After rounding the corners of the image, I framed with a pattern paper and then layered onto another one and a White Card base. I stamped the word JOY with Martha Stewart Alphabet Letters and popped up on the card.
Other Supplies: Versamark, Red EP, Patterns from Crate Paper Snow Day pad and American Crafts Kringle pad, Nesties Circle dies, Corner Punch.

Challenges to enter:
Cute Card Thursday: #396 Anything Goes
As You Like It Challenge: Favorites-Bright or Pastels.   Love brights...make such cheerful cards with brighter colors.
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra: Anything Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: All about using Patterned Paper
Please join in the challenge and fun at Retro Rubber.  Since the Retro Design Team Ladies share childhood  photos on the blog, I thought that I'd share a childhood photo too.

Thanks for dropping by the studio. I love reading your comments. Theresa

What an adorable stamp set featuring this snowman family! I can only imagine the "bunch" of copic markers used as I could not have told you how many prismacolor pencils I used in my card, LOL. Your coloring is exquisite and the sentiment was perfection with this sketch. Thanks so much for being our guest designer this week! We certainly love your talent and appreciation of stashed older stamp images!
