SSSC134.....Merry Christmas Frame

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

Another great sketch from Karen this week! I made another framed card using the same set I used for my card from yesterday. Stampin Up "Forest Festivities" This time using the cardinal stamp
I stamped the image onto some very vanilla card stock with black stazon and colored the image with my aqua painter and ink pads. She the glimmer on the birds hat? That is a tiny bit of the new Silver Glimmer paper. I cut a small sliver and glued it onto the hat brim. I added some crystal effects over the ornament also.

The DS paper I used on here is from the Holly Berry Bouquet paper pack. The base of the card is real red and I also used some wild wasabi card stock. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the brads are  some retired ones from last year.

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.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
