Getting my Craft On {Merry and Bright}

Tonight I was in a crafty mood! I went in search of a few fun challenges and decided to get inky! I love the sweet stamps at Totally Stampalicious, they are a Canadian Company which is cool! I am a Canadian too! So there I was looking through some different challenges and I knew I really wanted to challenge myself to make something with lots of layers and embellishments! So I tried my best! Totally Stampalicious has a "Let it Snow" Theme Challenge on this week, so I got out their WINTER BIRD SNOWMAN set and went to work!

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: WINTER BIRD SNOWMAN, Poinsettia and Pine from Flourishes
Inks: Copics, Basic Gray, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Papers: My Mind's Eye, Flourishes Vanilla CS, October Afternoon
Extras: Pearls, Striped Ribbon, Scallop Punch, Sponge, Nestabilities, Stickles

One sketch challenge I always want to try but have not had the chance to play along with yet is the Deconstructed Sketch. I flipped the sketch and used my ribbon as a flag on the side, not down the side of the front panel. I also added pearls right along the bottom of the card. I really loved this sketch and found that it gave me great inspiration! 

Deconstructed Sketch No. 79

I am also playing along with the following challenges
Creative Card Crew - 2W - #24 Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - #125 Lots Of Layers
Crafty Ann's - 2W, SIO - Week 1, Birds & or Animals (no people or insects)
