From the Heart Progressive Challenge

I am usually pretty good at reading the rules...

 but yesterday  I obviously missed the fact that at

 i {heart} card sketches

you need to use a From the heart Stamp

I really did like the sketch though, so this morning I made a quick card to rectify my mistake...

I have kept coming across cards with this Snowman and Cocoa image on them -
 so I did a bit of looking and...it comes from From the Heart Stamps
and is part of their Progressive Challenge...

The card base is one of those lovely hand-made paper ones that I discovered when I was living in India - the three scalloped squares are cut from a scrap of paper
 that I believe is a Dragons Lair design.
I coloured the image with Promarkers.

I will link this to the I Heart Sketch Challenge #140

I then made a twisted easel card using the same image this time the image is coloured with Promarkers with extra sparkle using silver and jade green glitter glue.

I used scraps of DP and snowflake confetti to decorate
 and one of the sentiments from the set to make the stand.

I will link this to the February Image Challenge

Happy Crafting!
