I am so excited to show you this card made with an image from our new sponsor Whimsie Doodles , I had such a difficult time deciding which of their beautiful digital images that I wanted to use, but finally decided on this set "axelent Christmas". Here is a bit about them:
Whimsie Doodles is so excited to be sponsoring the new challenge! In March of 2009 Melyssa Connolly, artist and owner, began turning her whimsical hand-drawn images into digital files for sale online. Whimsie Doodles' digital stamp line features images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between. We enjoy sharing lots of samples on our company blog, where we also post challenges and tutorials.

Isn't that great!! I know you will find something that you love and just have to have. And here is our sketch for this week, created by our founder Arlana!
For my card, I colored my image using copics, American crafts metallic and glitter pens. I stamped my Christmas tree straight on my design paper and then cut to size in even squares. I love the way this turned out and this image of the ice skates will be one of my faves for the future. I also layered my same papers for the inside, embossing one edge of the brown card stock with an embossing folder.
I know this is a busy week for everyone and I appreciate the time it took to stop by and see my card, I hope you will find time to play along with us this week. Be sure and stop by at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see what the rest of my team mates have created and find loads of inspiration.
Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating this week!
