Lil Lylah Xmas ~

Hi all!  Just bopping in with another challenge card today!  I'm a challenge junkie...they really help motivate me to use my stuff.  When I saw on i{heart}2stamp on Saturday that the new sketch is a prize sketch and the prize is a rubber stamp from Sparkle Creations, well, I just had to play along!  I love Sparkle's cute and whimsical stamps but spend too much money on PTI and Copics! LOL
This little sweetie is Lylah from the Lil Lolita's line.  I love this line - so cute!  She's stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  She has some lovely black glittered shoes (Spica pen).  She's all in pink to follow with the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #23: Pink Christmas.  The sketch is from this weeks Sketch for You to Try.  I had fun making the little embellishment up in the corner.  I used the Spellbinders Snowflake dies from a couple of years ago on some glitter paper from a mat stack along with a berry sorbet button and a little snowflake charm from Hobby Lobby.  I had to tie a tag behind it stating Merry Christmas because it's a little hard to tell that it's a Christmas card otherwise! LOL  The sentiment is embossed to go along with the current Paper Sundaes challenge #44 to pick your sundae toppings (pick at least 2): Punches, Ribbon, Embossing and/or the color blue.  I got the ribbon and embossing and punches if you count that dies as punches!  A bit of a stretch, but I like to try to stretch things out! ;o) This also goes along with Crazy 4 Challenges #63: Christmas and Cute Card Thursday #138: Anything Goes. 
Hope you're all having a great start to your week!  :o) lyss

EEK, I LOVE IT!!! What a fun image, and your cloring looks awesome! That sparkly snowflake is fab and so are the colors! I hear you on the PTI and Copics. I tried to resist but I ended up getting the new banner set and dies. Am I a terrible person?

So cute too, in a more sassy way! I like the way you did the snowflake and tag on this one - probably 'cause you got that button in there too!
