Card Sketch #20 and Blog Candy for 5000 hits



Wow, I can't believe I'm close to 5000 hits! So, I'm going to give away some Angel Company stamps and other goodies to one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post. Winner will be randomly drawn on Monday morning.

This card was done with Christmas in mind, since it'll be here before we know it. I dug into my SU Christmas papers for the base of this card. The red side panels were stamped in versamark with the circle sampler from TAC since they were a pretty good match!


The main image of the snowman is an old Gift With Purchase stamp from TAC. I colored it with my prismacolor pencils and OMS. I mounted him up on dimensionals, added a red square and distressed the blue panel. It was a pretty fast card, and the sketch is one that has a lot of possibilities. Enjoy and good luck to everyone on the blog candy!
