Old St. Nick

 I have been quite bad at getting my cards into the challenges that I have made them for. I love using sketches as a starting point and have been trying to use as many different stamps as possible. The following card I have made using the Sugar Bowl sketch with the theme of snow.

So here is my card using Sugar Nellie Old St. Ncik. I have sewn around the edges and also given the edges a stickle border. Papers are MME and the snowflakes are Whimsy.

Here is a closeup of Old St. Nick; Thanks Elaine; I am having loads of fun coloring these images and getting great use of them. (I won him from Elaine's candy) I have given all of the suites fluff some sparkle fluff from Our Craft Lounge. Doesn't really show on the pictures:(
Colored with Copics: Skin-E00,000,0000 R20 Hair/Beard-W2,0 Suit-R59,37,35 Shoes/Belt- T7,5,3 Mittens-G07,YG09,05

Here is a little bit of a sideways view of the snowflake so that you can see how high it really is. Also a peak of the inside and back of the card. Both sentiments are from Paper Makeup Stamps. I have been using the Handmade set on all of my cards; just love it! The sentiment on the inside is also PMS and you can find it as a digi HERE along with other great ones. Oh and remember that the PMS rubber is on 45%off sale while supplies last. Just use CLOSEOUT45 to get your discount.
