Santa Ruby

(For current Creative Card Crew challenge, click here.)

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the ladies at Tuesday Morning Sketches; our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps (yay!) and it the sketch was drawn by yours truly!  I really had a hard time coming up with a sketch (that's why I like sketch challenges so much) so I just thought I would go with my old stand-by layout.  I hope you will try it!

Ruby is colored with pencils and decked out with glitter.  I know that Santa's suit is not pink, but if I were dressing up as Santa, I would go for a pink suit for sure!  I used some fun, colorful Doodlebug papers and kept the embellishing to a minimum...just a snippet of ribbon and some acrylic gems.

Image: Bugaboo Digital Stamp "Ruby's Xmas Outfit"
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Pink Passion, Doodlebug DP
Embellies: Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Martha Stewart Glitter in "Sterling", White Satin Ribbon (my stash), The Beadery Clear Acrylic Gems 
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the Bugaboo creations using my sketch...please take some time to play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Digi Galore: Christmas
Dream Valley Challenges: Christmas
Little Red Wagon: We Wish You a Pink Christmas
Make It Monday: Anything Goes
The Squirrel and The Fox: Christmas

Thanks for stopping by!
