Christmas with Digi Stamp Boutique

How could anyone mess up that makes their own sketch. Well, I did it again this week.  I copied the sketch, looked at it and then colored my image. From there I had it in my mind that it was a rectangle. So I used the nesti and made it a rectangle. Then I went to cut all the other pieces and realized it was an oval. I did not want to redo my image as I had spent quite a bit of time coloring it in. So I came up with the idea of cutting it out. I did not have a big enough nesti so I used an old fiskars oval that I traced. It worked out well. Then I glued it to the kraft paper and free handed the cut around the kraft paper. All in all I was very pleased with how my card card turned out.

This week our sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique. Wow,  has SallyAnn created some darling images for Christmas. I was just over there looking around and she has lots of new ones. I just loved this nativity set. There are more images to the set. Go take a look you won't be disappointed. SallyAnn is offering 6 free digis to our prize winner at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

  1. I am feeling so bad that I am not there with you tonight. I got the bill half done at work today and I brought it home with me. I may try to work on it in a little while. My brain is about fried, though.
    I believe this is my all time favorite card that you have made. I love this image and you colored it up beautifully. I can't wait to see it for real. Your colros are gorgeous and I love how you cut the image out and used that darling oval behind it. it is just gorgeous.
    Hugs and love, Nancy
