Here's a card for Sketch Challenge 337. This is my first try at coloring on Kraft paper. I pulled out Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, and paper stumps, which haven't been used in a L-O-N-G time. I have to say that they are much more time-consuming than Copic markers.
I cut the tree out-of-the-box and used my new flat-bottomed cloud Die-namics from My Favorite Things for the first time. The main image is popped up on dimensionals, and all the edges are faux stitched with a tracing wheel and ruler.
P.S. Did you notice the owls peeking out of the designer paper? :)

Oh Shellie! This is uber sah-weet! Love your out-of-the-box fancy cuttin'~ and those cute lil owls! The clouds and paper piercing add so much dimension, I really like that.
