Mo's DP2 Challenge and Sketch Saturday Week #178

Good morning!  Hard to believe it's already Thursday! Is it just me or does the time seem to fly by?  Anyway, you know I love Thursdays because it's time for another Mo's DP2 Challenge!   Elaine is our hostess again this week and the theme she chose is "any holiday or celebration".  I decided to also enter my card in the Sketch Saturday Week #178 challenge.  That challenge is being sponsored by Mo's Digital Pencil - how perfect!

Here is my card for the challenges:

I chose Christmas as my holiday/celebration.  I merged two of  Mo's wonderful images - Door With Wreath and Noelle Bearing Gifts.  They can both be found in Mo's old store here.  I started with a card base of GKD Red Hot and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Jovial collection.  I machine stitched around all the sketch panels.  I printed my merged image onto Cryogen White Iridescent and colored it with Copic markers.  I added some Polar White Flower Soft for the snow and a few red pearls for the ornaments on the wreath.  The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Scalloped and Classic Petite Oval Nestabilities.  The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers Christmas Nested Sentiments set.  Two rows of gold pearls and a few Basic Grey buttons from my stash finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I really appreciate your visits!  Have a wonderful day!
