Deck the Christmas Tree it's a sketch challenge!

So here's Riley decorating his Christmas Tree, I wish he'd come & do mine! Riley can now be found at his new home, Riley & Company. The sketch challenge #12 at Delightful Sketches is being sponsored by Riley & Company. Make a card using this sketch, and follow the steps on the link provided to have a chance to win 3 wood mounted Rileys of your choice. You have til Dec. 10th to enter.

My card actually started with dp, but somewhere along the way it was ditched! lol This picture does not do it justice, trust me it looks better IRL!

I stamped Riley onto the natural ivory and coloured with with prisma colour pencils & oms. The tree is paper pieced with a scrap from Basic Grey. The ornaments were coloured with a red atyou spica and this I added some diamond stickles. This panel is popped up.

The card base is riding hood red, with a layer of natural ivory, and a strip of red embossed with the Christmas Ornament EF.

I love this new Martha Stewart edge punch, it's called Pine Needles. I used it to make the 2 strips in old olive. The ribbon is SU Sleigh bells.

The sentiment is from a set I ought at Michaels called Joyous Holiday by Hampton Arts. I used SU markers to colour it & punched it out with the punch who;s name I always forget! It's popped up on top of a red oval!

So why not give the sketch a try, and upload your card here, remember you have til Dec. 10th!
