From The Heart Stamps - Sketch 119 - Inspiration

A while ago there was a DT call for From The Heart Stamps and as a big fan of Faith's work, I decided to apply and I was selected!  So my six month term officially starts in October, through to March but I decided to join in anyway with the planned sketches.  So here is my little bit of inspiration for the current I {heart} sketches challenge #119.

I've used Christmas Spirit Birdbrain and he has been coloured with Promarkers plus glossy accents on his nose and eyes and a little glitter glue on the whipped cream in his mug.  The sentiment also comes with the digi.

I've embossed a panel of cardstock with a Cuttlebug folder then added the dots with a silver gel pen.  The snowflake is a Marianne Creatables die and the coloured card and half pearl are from my stash.

Here is the sketch for you to follow along with the twist - either is optional but you must use one of them and of course a From The Heart digi.

Good luck with the challenge!
