I {heart} Sketches with a tWist #163

I have just put together a card based on this sketch:

I have used some of the colour palette and the Child's Play aspect is the Snowman.

I started with a green card base matted with white. I added 4 banners cut from a scrap of DP in my stash and tied a snippet of ribbon  around them.

The image is from Flurry coloured with a Promarker and a clear Wink of Stella.
I cut this and the sentiment out with rectangular stitched dies.
The sentiment is a rubber stamp bought in Australia at the Melbourne Museum.

I will link this to
