Christmas Card Challenge #11

Hi there! This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is a sketch challenge. You can see the sketch over at the CCC blog. I loved this sketch because it was a pretty simple one to follow, and while I do love to put a lot of layers and detail into my cards, sometimes I just feel like going the simple route! 

I inked up this sweet little MFT Stamps Pure Innocence girl - Holly Girl - because sadly, she hadn't seen any ink yet! I had to fix that! I colored her with Copic markers and paper-pieced her dress with some of the same papers I used on my card - the Echo Park Season's Greetings collection. I love those Christmas papers! I even added a pearl to each of her shoes. 

I kept this card pretty simple and just finished it off with some pearls and a bow. That's it! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure you hop over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see what the design team has to share with you! Have a great day!
