SSSC87....Some things have to be Believed

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:

I used the fun little set, Jolly Old Saint Nick for my card and I have seen this sentiment from the Just Believe set used with him and thought it was perfect, so I had to team them up too.

The base of my card is a 5 inch square of real red and I followed that with some Baja Breeze card stock and the wonderful DS paper is from the Candy Cane Speciality pack from the Holiday mini.

I stamped the Santa onto some whisper white card stock and colored him with my real red marker and also with my aqua painter and some blush blossom. I added some star dust stickles to his hat brim and pom pom. I added some gray shading around his beard and around the whole image on the outside. I stamped the sentiment onto whisper white and used my scallop nestie with real red to cut the mat for the circle. I added a real red satin bow and some sticky rhinestones.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
