Christmas in July Sweet Sketch Style

It's Wednesday, and once again we have a fabulous sketch for you to try at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Play along, you could win a most wonderful prize from our sponsor, DigiStamp Boutique.
Sally Ann is offering free digi images - but not just one, or two, or even three...no, no, no, this generous lady is offering 10 FREE DIGI IMAGES!!! So what's stopping you??!! With that fabulous prize on the line, you'd better get stamping!!!

And here is my card using Arlana's super fun sketch and Digi Stamp Boutique's adorable image, Christmas Robin. I've always had fun with Christmas in July!! I printed this image onto watercolor paper and used my Tombow markers and blender pen to color it in. The DSP is an older SU paper called Merry Moments. Colors of cardstock include Chocolate chip, Real red, and Cameo coral. The sentiment is a rub-on...I'm starting to use these more and lovin' them. The snowflake is felt, the brad is corduroy, and the red candy dots were a last minute decision (that's what I get for rushing thru the sketch and not paying attention to the details!!). Of course a little stitching and chocolate satin ribbon finishes it off. Now remember, play along, you might be our next winner!!! Check out the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog for more great inspiration from the rest of the design team.
