{SSCC #18} Luke 1: 26-32

Happy Sunday! It's time for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges. Kathy Winter is our hostess this week and we are sponsored by Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. One random winner will win a three-month subscription to the magazine.

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David.
Luke 1: 26-32

Kathy thought that with this being Christmas week, and everyone being so busy, a simple sketch would be best. The challenge is to create a card with this sketch:

Here is the card I created with the sketch:

These cute little penguins are a digi stamp (Kissing Penguins) from Pink Cat Studio. The sentiment, also a digi stamp, is from Kissmas Ginger by Whimsie Doodles. Believe it or not, I used a few Copics from the Taylored Expressions Spa Copic Kit for this card. Coloring with Copics was so much fun! I just have to learn to stay in the lines! :) I definitely want more Copics. I also need to learn how to blend and shade. Right now, mine are just one solid image. But, I'm still happy with the result.

It's very hard to see but I used Frosted Lace Stickles on the trim of the girl penguin's hood and on the trim and pom of the boy penguin's hat. I also used SnowTek along the bottom of the circle to make it look like snow. I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the snow for some sparkle.

By the way, I also made this card with this week's Pink Elephant challenge in mind - to make a Christmas/Winter card.

Now, hop on over to the SSCC blog and check out the awesome inspiration from our design team. I hope you'll play along in our challenge this week!

Merry Kissmas to all of you! :)
