Wednesday TAWS #44 and Retro Sketches

The day is finally here!  I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. 

I have a new card to share with you today and I am entering it into 2 different challenges.  The first inspiration is the new TAWS Be Inspired photo.  I loved this photo!  However, I already had all my Christmas cards done. Sooooooo I took away with it the colors of the pink, light blue and red.  With this I knew I was going to use my Let's Chill stamp set. 
To see all the wonderful details from this challenge please go HERE!

Next, I needed a little bit of mojo.  I was in the mood but needed a starting point.  Soooo I looked at my some sketch sites and saw this amazing sketch from Retro Sketches. 

To see all the details of this challenge please go HERE.

Now for my card I stuck VERY closely to the sketch.  I broke out my October Afternoon paper to go with the color scheme and I picked one of my favorite stamp sets.  I colored my snowmen using my Spectrum Noir markers.  I stitched all my rays together.  Finally I added my sentiment and then used some snowflakes to go around the cutie!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a Paper Smooches challenge!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty Christmas day!
