52CCT - Sketch ....

...  Good morning!!  It's time for our first challenge of the month here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, our hostess this month is Asha and she has a fun sketch for us to use in our projects.  This month we are also being sponsored by Deedee's Digis, I've used one of her images on my card:

Stamps: Deedee's Digis - Gingerbread Holidays; Waltzingmouse - Tis the Season
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy
Dies: Spellbinders - Pinking Circles Lg (S4-170) #2 & 5, Circles Sm (S4-116) #3 & 6
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Strawberry Slush, Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade; SU DP - Lucky Limeade; Martha Stewart Punch - Snowflake; Copic Markers; Glitter; Ribbon


I followed our sketch to the letter.  I used the colours from this week's Colour Q - cQc#257 challenge for a non-traditional look and because I thought they would work on a gingerbread house.  I printed the image onto plain white card, coloured it with Copic markers, added some glitter and cut it out.  I created the circles using my Spellbinder dies and adhered the gingerbread house to the large circle and the snowflake to the small one.  I cut a strip of pink card, adhered the design paper, wrapped the ribbon round and then adhered it all to the card.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment.  I finished front of the card with a couple of gems.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in lime, stamped the sentiment in navy and edged the white card with the pink Copic marker for a fine border.

The glitter adds just the right amount of sparkle to the "frosting" on the gingerbread house! ColourQ gave an interesting combination of colors and you've used them well.
