Freshly Made Sketch and Color Throwdown Challenge

When I saw today's Freshly Made Sketch and Color Throwdown challenges I knew they'd be perfect together for some small pictures of Santa from Graphic45 paper.




My card is 5" x 6.5."  The The red and olive colors were in some scraps I had from Basic Grey several years ago, I just added a yellow mat which actually tied in with the colors in the Santa pictures. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the Outdoor Denim from Close To My Heart. It's white core was revealed by sanding. The Freshly Made Sketch kept it all simple. The sentiment is from the CTMH stamp set "A Holiday." I wanted a font that could be seen as "old fashioned" to go with the pictures.

I put the pictures in story sequence, ending with Santa watching the little child praying. I thought that was adorable.
