Tuesday Morning Sketches

Have you been to Melissa's Sketch Challenge blog?

This week her challenge was this:

I loved the DT cards so I decided to give it a try. First I rotated the sketch and made a fairly simple card. It was REALLY hard to step away from the layers that I seem to use in most of my cards so to compensate for the lack of paper, I think I used every bling technique in my arsenal! I've got glitter paper, sparkles and of course ... just plain glitter on this card.

This is "Hit With a Snowball" from Eat Cake Graphics, one of my favorite stamp companies. I got this stamp before Christmas but never did ink him so I wanted to use him.

While making this card, I broke my SU scallop punch and ended up making the card with my nesties. Now my dilemma is whether or not to get a new SU punch. I will admit that the convenience factor of a punch is appealing but I hate that they break. Hmmm, what to do?

What YOU should do is hop over to Melissa's spot and participate in the challenge. I did!
