Willow Sketchie Challenge

I love Willow Sketchie's very cute owl & bought myself a couple of their new Christmas digi-stamps today and have just made this card to enter into this week's sketch challenge. I've coloured the image with Stampin' Up! markers as I'd printed the image out a bit too small & there was no way I was getting into the teeny weeny areas with my PM's! I used two strips of ribbon on the side as one looked a bit lost and I've made the "buttons" using a Cuttlebug embossing folder & cut out the snowflake circles. The flourish around the sentiment is from the SU! stamp set "Frames with a Flourish" which I don't use very often, but as I had a bit of space to fill I've stamped it onto Real Red c/s with Real Red ink & just cut around the edges.

Stamps - Willow Sketchie digi stamp, SU! Circle of Friendship, SU! Frames with a Flourish
SU! Markers - Real Red; Garden Green; Close to Cocoa; Creamy Caramel
DSP - Here A Scrap digi papers
Cardstock - SU! Whisper White; Real Red
Ribbons - sticky ribbons from stash
Also used - Cuttlebug embossing folder, Cosmic Shimmer paint on fur on stocking & hat and Diamond Glaze on eyes

Not a good photo I'm afraid as it's a really dull, dark day, I took it in the porch but the light is just awful!
