House of Cards November Challenge - a sketch

Good afternoon and welcome to my DT post for the House of Cards Challenge blog. This month we have a great sketch challenge for you too combine with any of our card making styles.

I am on the Cute and Fun DT, so of course I went with a cute image on my card. I used the cute Charlotte and Christmas Candy Cane image from Milk Coffee. Isn't she just adorable?! I kept to more traditional Christmas colours as this one is for my MIL to use for her Christmas cards.

Papers: Ruby Red (Retired), Chocolate Chip, Holiday Treasures DSP (Retired), Whisper White all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card

Inks: Ruby Red (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers

Accessories: Heart Border Die from Papertrey Ink, Oval & Scalloped Oval Nestabilities both from Spellbinders, Diamond Stickles

Copics Used:
