For this week's sketch I used a la modes candy cane kisses available at My Favorite Things. The image was accompanied by Snowflake Trio Die-namics & Icicle Border Die-namics. Imagine this, we're already up to sketch #80! Wow... more than half way through the year too! Good thing I am starting on my Christmas cards now.
First the sketch...

I outlined the die-cut label image with a .05 tipped black ink pen, following the outline of the die & drawing "asterisks" (my idea of snowflakes) onto the points of the die shape. She was colored with Copics, the matching coat & hat were paper-pieced, while the top of her snow hat was accented with clear Spica Glitter Marker & then covered with Glossy Accent.

All in all, this card came out just as I envisioned it. I love it when it all comes together!
Well, I am certainly on a roll with my plan to make Christmas cards all this month... there's more to come!
Thanks for looking at my latest cr8'ion!
