Sweet Sunday Sketch 167 {you sparkle}

It is always such an honor when I have a card mentioned on a challenge I have played along with. I never expect it and I'm always floored when it happens.  It's even a bigger SHOCKER when I am asked to be a guest stamper for the challenge. Wow! 

I had to re-read my email 3 times to make sure Karen Giron meant to send it to ME ;) Thanks so much for asking me to join the talents of the Sweet Sunday Sketch team for this week. Yep, I'm this week's SSS Guest Stamper!

 I love Karen's sketches and this one was no different!

I had a blast with this à la mode-You Shine. I decided to not make a holiday card with it, but just a pick-me-up card that will be perfect for a friend.  I had fun with some bold patterns from the Seen & Noted paper pack. I used MFT Steel Grey as my neutral, love it! 

I stamped my ALM onto x-press blending cs and colored her up with my Copics. I'm really working on my shading techniques. Whatcha think? 

I used the Circle Stax 1 & 2 Die-namics for the large circle element in the sketch and then layered up two of the same Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics for the long banner piece of the sketch. 

I mimicked the string of lights with some silver cording, a Lemon Drop Star STax piece and a hand made bulb created from the Christmas ornaments Die-namics. I decided it was a great spot to place my sentiment.

I continued the card to the inside, but using more of the same papers and added another sentiment from the same ALM set. This time I added, "you Shine" along with a few more stars!

Here is this sketch for this week.
