Papertake Charlie

During the rounds of blog hopping I spotted this week's Papertake Weekly sketch. It's one of Katharina's and she is also offering one of her latest stamps as a prize. The new selection of stamps went on sale on Wednesday and these ones are illustrated by Elisabeth Bell I don't have this stamp as funds meant I could only afford to get 2 stamps this time around and the sketch was very appealing so I thought I would try my luck and make a card for the challenge. I chose to make another Christmas card with a stamp from one of Katharina's other collections Charlotte and Charlie. I chose Charlie and his snowballs. I am trying to get ahead on my Christmas card making. Although Halloween cards are also calling my name. Someone please give me more time in my day.LOL

The cardstock is not quite navy, whisper white and soft sky. The DP is a double sided paper from Heidi Grace. The sentiment is from the SU set Coldplay. White ribbon was tied at the top. The image was colored using watercolor pencils and mounted on dimensionals. I have put a little glitter to highlight the snowballs. A fairly simple card but it makes a big impact. According to the big WOW I got when my husband saw it last night. I have to say it looks really nice IRL.

Thanks for looking

I really like Charlie!! I also like that it steps away from the more girl like images we tend to use on christmas cards. The DP is out of this world!
