Winter Greetings in July....

BLOG CANDY ALERTBe sure to comment on the Stampendous Blog Candy post below for a chance to win Birch Buddies and Jumbo Snowman
***************************************
Today's card is one that I created using the sketch at The Lily Pad. I thought it was the perfect sketch for lining up all those cuties from Stampendous Snowy Short Stack. Lots of masking needed for this card. I colored all the images in with my Aquarelles and Derwent pencils. In order to make the colors pop, I laid down a layer of white colored pencil first for the elves outfits.



Challenges I am entering this card in:
Paper Craft Star- anything goes
Flourishes- Christmas
the Kraft Outlet- Christmas in July
Wee Memories- challenge # 62 CAS
the Rubber Cafe- Christmas
Simon Says Stamp- Anything Goes

This is so wonderful! Love the dimension you created by coloring a white base-coat (no pun intended) first. Will you be making 200 of these to send to your closest friends in a couple months? It's a great card.
