Some Odd Girl – Sketch Challenge

Here is another Christmas card to add to my stash, and killing 2 birds with 1 stone I am entering it in the Sketch Challenge at Some Odd Girl.  This is the Sketch –

The stamp is from Some Odd Girl and is “Mistletoe Kaylee” – what a cutie.  The papers are from Jillibean paper pad “Christmas Eve Chowder”.  I have paper pieced her jumper to match the background paper.  The flourish is from Zva Creative.

The strip of design paper behind Kaylee has been accordion folded to give the image some lift.  The sentiment is from PTI.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend – sure you are – we all love the weekend don’t we.

Bye for now,

      Thanks Chrissie. I saw the idea for the folded paper on a Penny Black article and just had to try it. Lorraine

  2. Fabulous card Lorraine! I love how you have paper pieced Kaylee’s top and that accordion fold background is such a great idea! Well done on getting ahead with your Christmas cards!

    Thanks so much for playing along with us in the July Sketch challenge at Some Odd Girl!

      Yes I love Some Odd Girl too. In fact Kristy made my gravatar. Powder Puff Girls must be too recent for me so I looked on the web to find out about them. Yes their eyes are like the Odd Girl’s. :) Lorraine
