Let's Get Sketchy!

**For the Blog Hop and Fairy Challenge please scroll down**

Good morning!  It's time for another Digi Doodle Shop Challenge!!  Woot woot!  This week we are challenging you to create a project using this sketch and either snowflakes or flowers (in place of the flowers in the sketch).


Pretty, huh?  I had a lot of fun working with this sketch.


I used the beautiful Winter Snow Bird. I just love this image...between the cute little bird, the fabulous trees and the lovely holly along the edges...it's one of my favorites.  =D  I colored the image with Copics.  It's kind of hard to see, but the majority of lines in the snow are outlined with Stickles.  The snowflakes (which were part of a Martha Stewart border punch I cut apart) are also outlined with Stickles.  I wish y'all could see it in real life...it's SO sparkly!  =D

Well, now that you've seen my card, slide on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to check out the amazing creations by the rest of the team.  They are just **fabulous**!

Remember, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop stamp, but if you do it will be entered twice.  Also, you can enter as many times as you want...as long as it's with a new card/project each time.  Plus, all animal stamps are 25% off for the month of November!  PLUS, if you spend $7, you'll get one of these fabulous images:


and a chance to support Pet Pardons! 

I hope to see you join in our challenge this week!  Thanks for stopping by, and we'll catch ya later.  =D

Nothing like blue skies after a fallen snow, and I've always heard seeing a Cardinal is good luck, and you should blow them a kiss. Super job hun.
