Inspirational Card Sketch #47

TGF Blog Hoppers: If you are still hopping please scroll down to the next post.

The count down is on...10 more days until Christmas. I can hardly believe it. Do you have your New Year's resolutions ready? My top three every year Loose Weight, Spend Less Money, and get more organized. What's on your New Year's resolution list?

For my card I used Dawn's fabulous sketch. If you would like to play along it can be found on the ICS blog. I also used the color challenge from The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday two week's ago. I used TGF's Twinkle Tot Madelynn and colored her with copics. I did a cut away frame with my nesties and distressed the edge of the scallops with a white craft pad. The papers are from October Afternoon. Please visit the rest of the DT for more inspiration and thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

So amazing in SO many ways!! From the colors, to the DPS, to the layout, to the embellies...your cards are flawless!!

A reverse mask is when you stamp the image and cut out the portion you want to show THRU. In other words I only cut out her skirt and that way all the rest is blocked/masked off. Hope that helps! I will try to get a tutorial up!
