This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 299. Karen I am sorry but I had to take a few liberties with this one to allow my images. HOpe that is OK. I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 289 - Baja Cajun Wasabies for my color combo and included Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 291 - Tag You're It as a bookmark for panel 4.
My images are from 2 digital sets that will be available on Oct 1st from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE called "Wonder of Christmas" and "Joy To The World". I used GIMP to change colors, sizes and manipulate my images to make it the way I needed it. The colors IRL really do match better than in the photo. Sorry. I embossed the wasabi cs layer (panel 2A) with Cuttlebugs Hollies & Berries folder then colored the berries with a copic marker to match cajun craze. I added some stickles to the snowflakes and the snow line on panel 2B wit the deer image. My sentiment layer is up on dimensionals and the bookmark behind it has a small piece of 2 sided tape that will peel off when teh book mark is removed. Despite my lack of desire to get started on Christmas these colors, like last weeks, scream for this theme. Have a fabulous Wednesday all my cyber friends. mmwwaahh.

Certainly a beauty!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
