Saturday is SCH day-Today's challenge is a sketch!

Today we have a sketch challenge to share with you. I believe we are all using one of our favorite winter releases. You can check out all the newest stamps here, don't forget to "go back in time" and see all the other gorgeous images Tracy has in her shoppe. There is something there for everyone, whimsical, deeply beautiful, very artistic with lots of flourish, primitive, vintage, a little country, and of course many beautiful verses and tag sayings. Get lost in the creativity, and then go let your imaginations run wild as you play with us this week and then share your masterpieces.

I chose to use the baby Jesus image again this week, I just love this image, it so amazingly gorgeous.
I think the designer paper is K&Company, the mat is Club Scrap that I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on, and this beautiful frame from Graphics Fairy. I combined the baby Jesus stamp with a portion of the Winter Scene stamp for this week's image. I did a light chalking of the blanket, straw and the baby's cheeks and mouth.

Here is a link to the SCH blog, this is where you can take a close look at the sketch and where you will post your card for all of us to see what you have come up with. I really hope you will decide to join us!! Below you will find links for the rest of the designer teams sites; at each and every one you will find beauty and inspiration and loads of talent!!

Thanks for stopping by, I really enjoy our Saturday's together! Hope you have a truly blessed weekend!

Sugar Creek Nugget: In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, "Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!" But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end." Luke 1:26-33 ESV

Where do I begin Donna! Now I've just spent literally 10 minutes absorbing all the fantastic details of this card! It truly is beautiful and finely crafted with all its layers and embellishments. Your use of the two images together is a wonderful idea and the soft color of the chalks are lovely in enhancing the gorgeous Baby Jesus image. You are a master at creating the most stunning of cards!
