Humble Pie Circle Sketch Challenge

Come join us over at Humble Pie Stamps for this week's challenge to make a circle card. Your image doesn't have to be a Humble Pie Stamp but if you have one we'd love to see you create with it. You have until midnight on Thursday, November 19 and a winner will be selected by Random.org. The lucky winner will be awarded $10 in Humble Pie Money to spend on Humble Pie stamps of their choice.

Here's my DT submission to this week's challenge. I love making circle cards using my Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. This is a quick way to add a tag or card to a gift. I used a MS snowflake punch for the gold snowflakes and added jewellery spacers and blingy brads from my stash to the snowflakes. I coloured Maggie Tangled in Lights, exclusively available at The Town Scrapper, with Copics (C2, E000, E00, E21, E31, E35, E39, R20, BG000, R24, R29, G05, G24, Y15 & Blender). For some bling, I added Xmas Red and Crystal Stickles to Maggie's hat. The ribbon with presents is from my stash.

Here's a close-up of the image in all its glitter glory. I was going to add Stickles to all the lights as well, but didn't like how the one I did stickle turned out. I've left it that way so you can see the difference. Oooh I just noticed, I forgot to colour in her eyes properly - urrrrgh, don't know how I missed that!

That's all for today. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend. Weather forecasters are predicting sun here in SW Ontario for the whole weekend so I hope they're right.

Hugs,
Maria
