I want a puppy for Christmas

It's Sketch Time on the Cute Card Thursday's Challenge Blog and we've a great sketch designed by Fiona.  I've chosen to use the sketch to create another Christmas card as my DT project.  Our sponsor this week is Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

I haven't used this sweet Sugar Nellie stamp in ages and as I was looking for an image for the Craftbubble Craft Mad & Loving It theme, 'Christmas Carol or Song' I thought this one was just perfect for "I want a puppy for Christmas".  I do like it when I can enter my DT projects in other challenges.

I coloured the image with Copics and used some magazine freebie background papers.  I'm so in love with my new Memory Box dies, I just had to use a couple of them to create embelishments for my card.  The image was cut out using an oval nestie then matted over a layer of red card cut with a scalloped oval nestie.   The large snowflake was cut with a Martha Stewart punch and the gem in the centre was from my stash.

Glamour Dust over Glossy Accents gives the puppy's hat trims some sparkly dimension, Stickles around the edge of the image layer, on the stars on her dress her wand and wings and GA on her ribbon sash were the finishing touches. 

Hope you like today's project and that you'll enter the CCT challenge, I do love checking out all the fabulous creations entered each week.
