December SFYTT sketch challenge

Woohoo! I achieved my goal of participating in the SFYTT sketch challenge every month this year. It certainly helped to get me stamping more regularly, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do it. This month there is no set sponsor, so I chose to use one of my Kraftin' Kimmie girls again. Posy and Piper were the first ones I purchased, and since I already used Posy in an earlier post, I pulled out Piper for this card. Isn't she adorable?

I stuck pretty close to the sketch, other than replacing the circle with a snowflake. I glittered the edges which turned out much thicker than I intended. The shape looks a little distorted. If I do it again, I'll use a glue pen instead to get a thinner line. Either that or cover the whole snowflake with glitter. I also wish I had used the more circular snowflake in the Damask Snowflake die set for better balance. Other than those small things, I think the card still turned out cute!

Here are my posts for the previous month's sketches:

I will post this year's Christmas card soon. I'm still searching for some elusive addresses!
