Tuesday Morning Sketches #173

Good Morning!  It's Tuesday so that means there is a new sketch up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one was created by Bonnie.  It holds a lot of promise for a lot of fun and creativity and you're going to love it!  This week's challenge is sponsored by Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

I had the fun and fortune of getting to work with a cute little image.  Now I know you're thinking to yourself that I am on the design team for them and I get to play with their images weekly, but this one is a new image to me.


Now does this card look like a Christmas party just blew up all over it?  I love how this turned out.  I used some old and new elements on my card.  I've had those QuicKutz dies for years (letters) and it was time to dust them off.

I do have to admit that I did color the image on the computer and then enhanced with Copics.  This is such an intricate image, I needed the little cheat.

Now head on over to TMS and play along with us!

You're right - it looks as if a Christmas fiesta exploded!! How fun and festive. Love the train.

p.s. now that you mentioned the liquid applique I do remember the blizzard. I totally forgot all about that.
