Papertake Weekly - It's sketch week!

Good morning and happy Tuesday!! Hope you're having a wonderful start to your day and the sun is shining!  I'm still in denial that it's Christmas time already! Where in the world does the time go? With that said, it's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and since it's the last Tuesday of the month, that means it's time for one of Dawny's fabulous sketches. I've followed this one to the letter and just simply flipped it sideways. We are being sponsored this week by the awesome Simon Says Stamp!!


So have you seen the new Nativity Collection from Magnolia?? It's available right now at Magnolia-licious and Diana is showing all of the images in full colored glory!! If you haven't checked them out, you simply must rush over and have a look!! For my card I used #3018 Holy Tilda with Lamb and I think she is so beautiful!!  You still have time to get these lovelies in your hands and do something with them before Christmas! Magnolia-licious offers an extensive selection of Magnolia images with fantastic service and prices! Plus you receive a 2% store credit with every purchase!! Tilda is colored with Copic markers and then cut out with oval Nestabilities. I kept this card extremely simple as I wanted her to be the main focus without a bunch of bits and baubles. The papers are Simple Stories matted with Bazzill cardstock.


Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all my teamies fabulous creations, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
