Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 141

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC141 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I'm not really sure I had a plan when I made this sketch, but I really like where the journey took me with this one!  I knew I wanted to use Woodland Winter from Taylored Expressions for my main focal images and I went from there.  I grabbed some Holly Jolly Christmas 6x6 paper and then cut out a tree using the Trim the Tree dies - I cut the outline tree in Choice Snow White cardstock and then the tree layers in the patterned paper.  I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic markers and then layered them onto the snow I cut out free-hand. 


Here are the Taylored Dies I used today:
