SC245 The Reason

Hello!  I made this for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS : )  I picked up this adorable Stampendous image last week at Michaels along with this Stampabilities sentiment.  I couldn't wait to get them inky!  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I added some Diamond Stickles to the angel's wings.  I stamped the sentiment with Old Olive and added some Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges.  I also used my Tim Holtz Distress Tool to rough up the edges a little bit as well.  I used a Nestabilities Labels One die for the brown panel and added some texture to it with the CB Textile Folder.  The red satin ribbon and Dew Drop finish it off : ) 
Onto some other news!  Your Next Stamp (YNS) has opened a Yahoo Group which you can find HERE!  If you join by October 1st you could win a $20 gift card to the YNS store!!!  Come chat with the DT members, post comments and questions, and just have fun!  Hope to see you there : )

Oh my, Kerri, what a gorgeous card. I am in love with that stamp and sentiment, and of course your colouring is beautiful. Great choice of colours too, the brown goes so well with the red & green Christmassy colours. Gorgeous! Hugs, Simonne x
