Getting Sketchy with the OCC

Happy Saturday! This week, Lynda Benden, our October Our Creative Corner hostess with the mostess gave us a fab sketch to play with. Some of the gals from the Jacksonbelle DT are guest hosting this week, and there's a $20 gift certificate to Jacksonbelle Embellishments up for grabs for participating, so be sure to check out the sketch and all the details on the OCC Blog. And you won't want to miss the fabulicious creations from the OCC Crew: Amy, Cindy, Dawn, Denise, Jennifer, Laurie and Lynda.

My card uses the new Fairy Christmas set by The Cat's Pajamas. I stamped the dreamer stamp and colored with Copics, then sketched a little wavy border around her and colored in the border with a Copic marker. The next panel is embossed with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and then I painted over the swirls with a waterbrush and Pearlescent Watercolor Paints for some yummy shimmer. On the pink layer, I stamped the Christmas is for Sugarplum Dreams sentiment and then stamped a little holly leaf beside it. Each layer is matted with a french roast cardstock, and then I wrapped some cozy American Crafts ruffled ribbon around the side. I finished off with some diamond glaze and glitter and a few teeny tiny rhinestones for sparkle.

Hope y'all have a fantastic weekend and find a little happy stamping time to play with this fun sketch!
