Winter Song Sketch

Have y'all joined Paper Craft Planet yet? It's another wonderful site to find inspiration and connect with stamping friends. They have different groups you can join, depending on stamp company or interest, and I just so happened to stumble across a sketch challenge group. You better believe I joined that one! This sketch was very similar to Taylor's recent cupcake challenge, in that they both had you using two different papers down the center. I love that this one included the use of a circle. For some reason, I just don't use circles that much. I need to pull them out more often! My little Elzybell is colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I added sparkly snow with Stardust Stickles. I also used white Liquid Applique on the trim of her coat and the top of her hat. I made the sentiment a little wavy, so it looks like a banner and attached a button with lime Scrapper's Floss. Can't wait to see everyone's creations using this sketch!

Stamps: Winter Song & sentiment (Elzybells, A Muse)
Paper: Wasabi, White, Riding Hood Red, Heidi Grace - Jolly Bright/Decor Stripes
Other: Circle Nestabilities, Koh-i-noor pencils, OMS, Stardust Stickles, white Liquid Applique, button, lime Scrapper's Floss, Riding Hood Red Taffeta

Kim it's so adorable! I love all the details you've added. I just realized that the first Elzy I've ever used was today on Cindy's kit. I really must get me some of these! :)

CUTE! Love those stripes/paper and the banner...and the button!:) I've been seeing that scrapper's floss on everything lately, where do you get it? Someone curls it and puts it with her flowers, so pretty!
