Drummer Boy

How are those Christmas cards coming?  Not done, yet?  Well, we have the perfect challenge for you on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog: It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas.  How easy is that?!  Our three sponsors are:

Kith & Kin Stamp Co.

I was given this fabulous image from Kith & Kin Stamp Co.  This is one of those images that just really comes to life when you color it up.  Isn't he adorable?
Here's a free tip for you: If you don't have metal embellishments to match your color scheme, spray paint them.  I really wanted to use the star brads that I had, but they were a matte silver color which didn't fit with the gold accents on my image.  So I spray painted them with gold paint and now they are perfect!  Also, the gold mat behind image is actually recycled wrapping paper.  It's got a really great texture to it.
Head on over to the LTSCB and check out what the rest of the DT created for this challenge.  Then come back and play, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Great ideas for coloring the metal embellishments. I always use my lack of the perfect accent as a reason to go shop ... not good! Such a pretty card too. Thanks so much for joining in the sketch fun this week.
