RI Sketch Challenge - Santa's Friend

Welcome to this week's Repeat Impressions Sketch Challenge! For my card, I used this wonderful Santas's Friend (#2019-I) image. I colored the bird to look like a robin...;-) Santa's coat, hat and bag are paper pieced and the trim is Liquid Applique. The background paper is from The Paper Studio. For the corner elements in the sketch, I stamped the Holly Sprig (#307-D) image twice, cut them out, colored them using Copic markers and then covered them with Glossy Accents.

We'd love to have you play along!  Head over to The House That Stamps Built to see the sketch, find out how to participate and to see the great cards the rest of the team created!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the vintage feel of this card - wonderful colors! Also, what a great idea to use holly leaves for the three elements in the corners!
