Singing Trio

 Hi and welcome to another sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches where this week our hostess is Judy Rozema.  Here's the card I made with her great sketch:

I am trying to take a leaf out of Jen, my fellow teamie's, book and keep up with making Christmas cards throughout the year.  January and February I have absolutely no interest in making another Christmas card, but come March I need to get back into it.  I thought the circles in the sketch would work for these cute carolling kittens so set to work Copic-colouring them and cutting them out with my Scan n Cut.

I hot-foiled a sentiment with gold foil and went to work on setting the scene.  I wanted to keep my card CAS, so only stamped some pavement for them to "stand" on - which also worked fabulously with the sketch.  Finally, I added my kittens with some foam tape and called it done.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Please check out the fabulous cards made by the design team.
