A Sweet Christmas Card

Well, every sweet card begins with a sweet sketch...so welcome to our new fabulous sketch for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Another one with lotsa layers.




You'll be playing this week for some free digis, 6 to be exact, from our wonderful and totally generous sponsor Digi Stamp Boutique. Get your mojo warmed up and start creating for a chance at this awesome prize!



Now here is my card, using the adorable image from the Rocky Robin collection called Rocky and Christmas Pud. Well let me be totally honest with you, when I saw this image, I saw a chocolate covered strawberry. When I started coloring it up, it hit me, strawberries are dipped in chocolate so why is it on top of the berry here. Then the light bulb came on bright...maybe it isn't a strawberry at all!!!!! That's the beauty of creativity and stamping, you can make it anything you want it to be!!! So a chocolate drizzled strawberry it is!!!! Please check out what the rest of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday design team created, you will love it, guaranteed.
