Finally all done with the October Viva la Verve sketches!! This card uses sketch #5 and the adorable Santa's Helper stamp set. This guy is just so cute, I had to color his up for this simple sketch.
About the Card
The base is an A2 in Riding Hood Red followed by layers of kraft and DP from Simple Stories - Handmade Holiday paper pad. The edges were sponged with Antique Linen distress ink, distressed, and stitched with natural thread. The main image was printed on 110lb. white and colored with Prismacolor pencils. Xmas Red Stickles were used for the nose and a 3mm rhinestone was used to accent the hat. The sentiment was stamped in Onyx Versafine on white and cut out using Verve's Ribbon Banner die. The image was mounted over a Rosette made from DP using TCP's Easy Rosette CutUps. This was mounted over Riding Hood Red cut out with Spellbinders lacy circles dies and accented with Platinum Pearl Liquid Pearls. Finally, brads were added for some more bling!!
