'tis the season

Good morning!  Mondays mean a new sketch at From the Heart's a fun one...I hope you will join us and try it!

I am using Holly Jolly Christmas today.  The birdbrain is colored with pencils and accented with glitter, then die cut and layered.  I hated to hide the cute DP so I've used vellum for one of the layers and secured it with brads.  Somewhere in my stash is a cute present charm, but I couldn't find it so I used a banner instead.  Ack!  Does that ever happen to you?  You have a plan, but can't find what you want....  So frustrating!

Image: From the Heart Stamps
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Blue Bayou, PTI Pure Poppy, My Mind's Eye DP, The Paper Studio Vellum
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Doodlebug Glitter (yellow)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilites, EK Success 3D Dots

Here is the sketch for this week:
