Christmas cardinal - TMS #282

Happy Tuesday to you!!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   We're back after our 2 week long challenge and ready for this new year of creating and being inspired by awesome sketches!   We're starting this year playing again with our favorite sketches from 2014.  I get to start! :)

(The red paper and bird actually match IRL, I promise!!!)

Remember I told you that I was terrible at making and then sending Christmas cards?  I'm already doing better  for 2015! LOL  

Here's the sketch I chose... (as you can see, I used a different shape for my image panel.  Feel free to change the shape, turn, or flip the sketch.  We just ask that we are able to recognize that you used it.)

I am also sponsoring this week's challenge, so please play along for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!  Digis, clear stamps, dies, and more!!

My image is from Sweet 'n Sassy... Christmas Joy Clear Stamp Set.   The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out with Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked with TH Pealed Paint.  My DP is MME Vintage Sweater.  A few green brads and the last scrap of this ribbon finished it off.  

Die Cut Divas January Challenge - anything goes 
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - old and new (old DP, ribbon, and brads w/ new stamp)
Shopping Our Stash #183 - use something new (my stamp)
