Sketch Challenge - A Hug for Ike

Hello!!! My card for today is for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast. I used this adorable image A Hug for Ike from Whipper Snapper. I love this image, so very sweet!!! I colored this image a while ago and for whatever reason never turned it into a card and today's sketch is perfect for it!!!! I colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps. I was really stumped on what colors to go with. For some reason when I think of winter, I always think blue which wasn't going to go well with the image!!! I found this paper in my stash and thought it went well. I applied liquid applique along with glitter under Mike and Ike. I found these little snowflakes in my stash and used the rest of them for the card!!! I am on a mission to use what I have and not purchase anything else for a while so it felt good to use these up!!! The base card is Dark Chocolate from Papertrey. Love the color!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!


  1. Absolutely flippin' ADORABLE!! Love Mike & Ike. The little snowflakes are such cute accents!

  2. Where do I sign up for this mission you are on of using up what I have? Ha! This is a darling card. I especially love the color of the bear. I don't see off white coloring very often and it makes him look so real.
