New Sponsor at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!


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!

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!

Hi Patti - I love how elegant and fresh your card looks. The way you have split the side panels and they are still a whole picture of a christmas tree is really clever. A great colour combo too - Happy thanks giving - Michelle x

Patty, your card is beautiful, I love the way you took your pattern paper to create your side squares - fabulous idea. Love this simple but very elegant image. Definitely another favorite for me!

Patti,
That skate image is taking me back to days of high school. What a great sentiment for the image.
