I used the Moonlight Whispers Madeline image for my card along with this month’s Sketch for You To Try, which happens to be sponsored by Kraftin’ Kimmie this month. Instead of using traditional holiday colors, I colored her in a feminine pink and green color scheme.

Most of the cardfront is covered in a multicolored hexagon patterned paper. Since I used green in the image, I found some green on green dotted paper to use for the two panels on the left side of the card. Once the panels were in place, I added a piece of pink grosgrain ribbon, overlapping the edges of the green panels, then set the image panel on top. The “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” sentiment is stamped directly on the bottom of the cardfront in black ink.

Materials Used:
Moonlight Whispers Madeline stamp set (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Pretty in Pink and Kiwi Kiss cardstock (Stampin’ Up!); Everybody Loves Christmas—Wrapping Paper designer paper, Dots & Stripes 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); pink grosgrain ribbon (Morex)
