New Release and Thursday Challenge at StampInsanity!

That's a long title. :)

I was so excited when I saw these super cute new images from StampInsanity. I love the Renaissance look and to tie it in with Christmas was almost too much! Almost...:)

The challenge this week was a sketch. I like sketch challenges. For me, they are just enough freedom and just enough structure. Here is my project:

The image of course is from StampInsanity. Holiday Princess Maddie 2010. It's a set of two images and some really pretty sentiments. It's beautiful!!

I colored Maddie with my PrismaColor pencils and used Stickles on the flowers in her hair. I used floss to "sew" the holly and more stickles for the berries. I made the border on the left with my Fiskars scallop punch. The border around the image is also floss. I think that covers most of it.

Swing on over to StampInsanity and see what all the fuss is about! ;)

This is really pretty! I love the holly border you sewed! I can't believe you sewed it! I am so impressed! I can't bring myself to try sewing on cards. Great job!
