52 CCT

I took part in an art exhibit on Sunday with all my cards and got a lot of positive feedback. In the end I was offered the opportunity to sell my cards in an event shortly before Christmas. That got me thinking about Christmas cards.... so I scoured blog land for Christmas Challenges and found 52 CCT. This week there is a sketch challenge, that I somewhat loosely interpreted....



The card stock is really pretty - it has little sparkly specks in it - you can see this better on the close-up.



The gnome/Santa is from Papersource, the die is from Memory box and the sentiment is from Stampin' up. The set is called "It's snow time"
I colored the Santa with Copics and fuzzy cut it.

Sehr interessant, wie du diesen Sketch interpretiert hast! Auch die Farbwahl finde ich klasse und du hast recht, der Farbkarton schimmert wirklich wunderschön.
