Have A Jolly Holiday!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT), which is sponsored by Sparkle Creations!!

I already have a few of Sparkle's stamps in my collection, and I was so excited to be able to add one more! My card today features the darling Holiday Emily and she was SO much fun to color!!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers. I added some Smooch Illuminate to the bell to make it shimmer, and the berries in her hair, the white parts of her dress and shoes and her big green bow all received a coat of Crystal Fine Martha Stewart Glitter. She is SUPER sparkly in real life!!!

The patterned paper is all from Cottage Christmas from Imaginesce, and I sewed all the panels on my sewing machine. I added two white brads on the bottom left hand corner...I think brads just may be my most favorite embellishment!!

The sentiment, "Have a Jolly Holiday" is from the brand new Emma Celebrates the Season from My Favorite Things and I thought it was perfect with this image. I cut it out and embossed it with Circle Nestabilities and layered it onto Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

Please check out what my SFYTT sisters have created with this sketch, and Sparkle Creations stamps, right here!
