Something New For You!

Hi there! These new digis I purchased from digistampcharacters on Etsy are really getting my creativity going. I colored this guy a few nights ago and thought it would be a good one to pair with Sentiment Flags. So I thought I would play along with this week's Sketch For You To Try and saw we could use any past sketch so I pulled out this one:

Here is what I did:

I got a HUGE (for me) response on my Color Throwdown card this week over at Splitcoast Stampers, so I tried my hand at another "ribbon collage". I've had this Merry Christmas twill in my stash for a few years and this is the first time I've whipped it out! I think it looks nice tied around the red and white ribbon. I added a corduroy button and some jingle bells and baker's twine. Following the sketch I used some of my most favorite Mitten Weather papers from Cosmo Cricket.

Of course I manage to sneak in a Sentiment Flag die, but this time I stamped a dotted background and added my sentiment in eggplant ink and opted for no border. Just one more way SF can be used!

Sentiment Flags die and stamp set have been restocked here in the shop and retail for $15 plus s&h. I happen to think they make a fabulous stocking stuffer for a crafty friend at that price!
