The sketch for the challenge is shown below. I chose one of the Herb the Snowman images for this one. I colored him with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. I added some flourish die cuts, blue gems and snowflake embellishments.
The card below is another one for Susan's Christmas in July challenge on the CK message board. The image is Sitting Alva from Magnolia colored with Prismas/mineral spirits. I used a sketch that Susan also created a few weeks ago. I embossed the circles with Cuttlebug folders and Sizzix Texture Plates. The pink trim and metal word charm are goodies I found in my stash. I think the top right corner needs something, but I was having trouble finding something that really worked tonight. I may add something later if something comes to me.
