Kraftin kimmie and kraft cardstock

The challenge on the kraftin kimmie challenge blog is to use a kraftin kimmie image and kraft cardstock.  I love lisette she is so easy to color up and make a card with for any occassion.  I choose to dress her up in christmas colors and use the studio g merry christmas sentiment.  So she ready to celebrate a christmas party or a christmas dinner.   I paired her with cosmo cricket mitten weather papers and she is colored with copic markers.

Snow Juggler

This cute juggling snowman is one of my recent wins that i got for participating in the paper craft planet sugar nellie weekly challenges.  I inked him up today to participate in the sugar bowl challenge which is to follow the sketch and the option of using black and white.  I did get some black and white in with my blue and gray color scheme.  My pattern papers are both digital papers.  I colored my juggling snowman with copic markers and then i chalked the white background of my card in pale blue to coordinate better with the gray and blue scheme of the card. The sketch is flipped cause i really wanted to use the snowman.  I finished it with 3 silver brads.  Come join us with your own sugar nellies at the sugar bowl.
