LOTV Thursday Challenge Sketch 67

Challenge time at the LOTV blog! This week we have a sketch to work with, you can see it here. It's not exact, but I usually use sketches as a 'jumping off' point instead of copying it exactly. I figure if you can still identify the major elements of the sketch, that's close enough for me.

I can't get enough of Christmas cards, I think they are my favorite cards to create! I love the designs, the colors, the sentiments, I love everything about Christmas! For example, this little bear stamp would be adorable if he was an everyday bear, but with that darling Santa hat....cuter than cute! He's colored with my colored pencils, but I used some Copic Spica glittery pens for the gift bows. 

I don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of my favorite red/white striped ribbon from SU. I LOVE that stuff. I wonder if anyone else makes this ribbon in more colors maybe? Must search for it soon...

Now head on over to the LOTV challenge blog for this week's inspiration, then create your own card using LOTV stamps for a chance at a prize.

Follow this link to her ribbons page and scroll down till you see the 2" wide striped reels. No connection to Sharon - but I have bought from her before a few times, and she is a lovely person to deal with.
