Winter Warmth

Hi and welcome!  We interrupt our Camp Create cards to bring you the latest challenge from Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the fabulous French Cecile Ribon!  And here is her sketch:

I used the colors from the current MFT challenge for my Christmas card this week.  This card can be added to my pathetically small pile of Christmas cards :)



I used the Winter Warmth stamps and dies that I bought in the recent retirement sale and stamped them using the challenge colors (or my equivalent of the challenge colors).  I added some mint colored spatters in the background to represent the circle in the sketch and all the clothing is the rest of the sketch elements.



Thanks for visiting!  Head on over and check out the fabulous cards by the rest of the DT.

Products used:

Stamps:  Winter Warmth, Winter Wonderland, Distressed Patterns (MFT)
Ink: Mint, Teal, Soft Navy, Coral Reef (SSS)
Cardstock:  White
Dies:  Winter Warmth
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen

Cheers
Karren

What an amazing card Karren! I love the hat, mitts and scarf! Great colours and such a fun design! I am totally not ready to be thinking winter yet but with the weather we've been having, it's coming sooner than later!

Well, now, isn't this an adorable collection of winter gear?! Such a fun way to use the sketch. Love the pop from the red!

Your pathetically small pile of Christmas cards just got one better now, didn't it! Fun card. Love how the hat, mittens, and scarf take the place of the shapes on the sketch. So creative!

This is a fun and creative way to use the sketch! Now if only my kids could leave all of their gear on the floor in such an artful collage like this, maybe I would appreciate it more. :)
