Inspirational Card Sketches #42

Good morning all you out in blog land! Today is Inpirational Card Sketch #42 Day and what a great sketch and sponsor we have for you. Today's sketch really lends itself well to feature some yummy designer paper or a really cute image like these little darlings that are called Candy Cane Snack from The Greeting Farm. I also used the hugs and kisses sentiment from the Keep Cozy Set from The Greeting Farm that could be yours if you play along at ICS this week and get picked as the lucky participant. I'm was soooo happy to work with TGF images again. I was on the summer gardener design team and what a wonderful DT experience it was. So organized and always planning events to involve the customers. That is smart business.

For my card I colored up the image with copics, used some more of that fabulous My Mind's Eye holiday paper, added some buttons, and some fun snowball ribbon. I did my ol' tracing on the inside of the nestie trick to pop the image out of the box and used the same nestie to cut out the frame. I also added some stickles on the Candy cane. One thing I have learned while working with digi images that if you are using an inkjet printer that you can print them out a day or two ahead and let them dry...then you won't have issues with ink smearing or need to heat set...unless your impatient like I am sometimes. Thank you for stopping by and for more inspiration on today's sketch please go visit the rest of the fabulous ICS DT girls listed in my sidebar.
