The Pixie Cottage Challenge #3 - A new Sketch

Here's the 3rd and final post for today!
It's time for another new challenge at The Pixie Cottage and this time it's another new sketch.

There are so many wonderful Pixie Cottage stamps to choose from but when I saw this one I just had to use it! It's drawn by the very talented Tish and was an absolute joy to color!

Of course I had add some other challenges along the way :)

Kraftin Kimmie wanted you to Stitch It Up, whether it be real or faux.
Daring Cardmakers wanted to see you Get Krafty and use Kraft paper somewhere on your card
Easy Breezy Kewl had a color combo of Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Whisper White
Play Along Monday wanted Anything Christmas and so did Jacksonbelle Embellishments and Belli too!
Die Cuts R Us wanted you to "Emboss Something" so I used a new CB folder on the Kraft panel.

It's Rudolph fabulous? You can almost hear him telling Santa of everything that is one his list.
The dp are from My Minds Eye and are embossed and glittered giving an extra depth to the card.
The holly are wooden accents from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon is Michaels.
I used the one of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders on the Kraft panel.
The sentiment is Colorbok.
I added Glossy Accents to Rudolph's nose and Pearl puffy paint to Santa's beard, hat, cuffs and boot tops.
The paint reflected in the gloss on the photo so it looks liked they smudged but in real life all is well :)

The inside is more dp and a message mat.

Here is a better view of the happy pair and you can see no smudges here ;)
It's a great sketch to work with and I'd love to see what you make of it over at The Pixie Cottage
