Tuesday Morning Sketches Birthday: Week 4

Good morning! It's time for another challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches! This is the last week of our birthday celebration, so I hope you will play along with us...as always, there are prizes!

This week our sponsor is DRS Designs and our theme is "Christmas in July". As soon as I saw this adorable face, I knew this image was the one for me! As I was looking through my DP, I found this fun paper from Daisy D's. I thought it might be fun to make a card a bit different than my normal style. I love the distressed look of the paper and thought it would be fun to combine with Kraft.

I used sketch TMS #43. The image is colored with pencils and I used some Distress Stickles on the jingle bells, along with a black gel pen on the eyes. The card is embellished simply with some buttons and twine.

Image: DRS Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Kraft and Dark Chocolate, Daisy D's DP
Embellies: Distress Stickles in "Antique Linen", PTI Red Buttons, White Button (my stash)

I hope you will go on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and check out the rest of the DT's cards. Don't forget to play along!

Thanks for stopping by today; have a good one!
