Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #61 ~ Sketch Challenge

Good Morning, it's frosty here today, 
This Fortnight is a sketch challenge...

Use the sketch in any creative way that you want, flip it, turn it, be inspired by it. The circle could represent any image and "paperbabe stamps" any sentiment.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenges are open to everyone...
As usual you are welcome to combine with other challenges too.

Please be sure to link your project below for a chance to win Paperbabe Stamps Gift worth up to £20*.

Now onto the team's fabulous interpretation...

Terri played with the sketch layout slightly to create her Christmas themed card. She used the recent release of the Cute Nativity stamps to add Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. The stamped backgrpund was made heat embossing the Doodle stars stamps and the sentiments are from the Sparkle Bright stamp set.

Delphine made a CAS card using the sweet little angel from the Cute Nativity stamp set. She coloured in Copics and added lots of glitter with a gel pen. She used chipboard covered in glitter to complement her angel.

Kim
Kim took the opportunity to create another Christmas card, the background was made up from the versatile DesignA Tweed stamp set, with Joy Peace love stamped over it. She used the Peaceful Flurries with it's coordinating substrate kit to represent the circles in the sketch. The sentiments were heat embossed from the sparkle bright stamp set.
