This card is for this months dirty dozen sketch challenge. It is a sketch by my good buddy Denise (*waving hi!!*), LOVE this sketch!!! I followed the rules of the featured stamper challenges and changed a few things. I changed the theme, different piercing and placement, and 2 rows of ribbon. I haven't used this super cute A Hug for Ike stamp from Whipper Snapper since last winter and since the dreadful season is right around the corner, it is time to start producing those types of cards! Mike and Ike were colored using the Gamsol Magic technique, the icicles and below the 2 cuties I added Dazzling Diamonds, pretty and sparkly irl, hard to tell in the photo!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
