Marleen's Stocking

Hi, everybody!  Today I'm joining a new Progressive Challenge at Imagine That Digistamp!  I received this cute image, along with papers and sentiment, for free when I signed up.  If you'd like to join and get this set for free, you can still sign up this month.  

This set is called Marleen's Stocking. I opted for the precoloured version and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape.  I adhered her to a snowflake-embossed scrap and layered the digital papers according to the sketch shown below.  I added Star Dust Stickles to her cap and Xmas Red Stickles to the berries on the paper.  I finished the card by stamping a tiny sentiment (Merry and Bright) at the bottom left and adhering a large green snowflake sequin.

Here is the inside of the card, using the sentiment provided and a strip of leftover patterned paper:

My card design was inspired by Sketch Saturday 634, where we can pick any sketch from their 2015 library of sketches.  I chose Sketch 386 by Debra:

I would also like to support the following 8 challenges, for a total of 10:

Beccy's Place - A Month of Holiday Cards "C" for Child, Cap, Cute, and Candy Cane UE

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 514 AG Optional Beginning with H

DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d

Dragonfly Dreams Christmas or Winter 2/3

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Hi dear Kitty! Such lovely card with that cutie! The big snowflake is a perfect catch-eyes and the drops for berries add a festive tone to the whole creation! Love how you decorated the inside with the leftover strip, it's a great way to use scraps!
Big hugs!!!

Your card is so festive Kitty, the traditional colours and the cute little image are fantastic! I love the addition of the stickles on the hat, it adds a lovely sparkle, and I like the shine you get from each of the little berries. Fabulous!
