Viva la Verve Week 1

Hi everyone, hope all of those in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with their families. So glad to be back in my craft room and today I'd like to share my card for the monthly VLV Sketch Challenge going on over at SCS. My head is held low, in total shame, for waiting until now to make my 1st card for this challenge but this month has been a blur. I am going with the "better late than never" attitude and pressing on. Here's Amy's fun sketch for the first week of November.

As I was choosing paper for my card I came across this Jillibean Soup-Homemade 6 Bean dp that actually coordinates brilliantly with the snowflakes in the Bright Spirits set. I decided to stamp the two smaller circles using the snowflakes and colored the smaller one with Copics YG03 & YG21 while the larger circle was randomly stamped with the large snowflake image. Julee designed Santa's Helper (aka Rudy) with a snowflake on the hat which coordinates perfectly and I stamped the smaller snowflake in a matching shade, cut it out and glued it to my main stamped image panel. The ribbon looked lonely so I placed three green dew drops at the top and I should note that I used a Copic marker to color the rhinestones to match the outlined snowflakes. Love this little trick! 

This card is serving as one of my "thank-you" cards for Christmas gifts we'll receive from friends and family. Just in case you are wondering why Rudy's nose is pink that's because this is Mrs. Rudy. ;) I have more "thank-yous" to make so might use the remaining sketches to do that, we'll just have to see where the mojo leads me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
