Sweet Stop sketch with a spin

Happy Saturday! I hope your day is going well. It has been one of those mornings here at my house but I am determined to put it behind me and to get on with the rest of the day :). Starting off on the right foot is the sweet stop sketch for this week. I found this one to be a bit easier for me so that was cool! Even better is that this week is the sketch with a spin and that means a prize is involved. The spin this week is one that I sure do love and that is sparkle!! Below is my sample and the sketch:

I printed the cute Cocoa image onto Neenah white cardstock. This is a new digi for October called Cocoa's Santa hat. I colored him with copics, added stickles to the white trim of the hat and then sprayed it, along with the patterned papers, with dazzling diamonds glimmer mist. Truthfully it would have just been easier to print the image onto white sparkle but oh well. The edges were stitched and rhinestones were added to the corners.

here is a close up for you where you can see the flecks of sparkle. You can also see some of the small blobs which is why I prefer sparkle paper rather than the glimmer mist.

paper- basic grey wassail, kraft, neenah white
accessories- mega curved rectangle nesties, rhinestones, sewing machine, stardust and frosted lace stickles, dazzling diamonds glimmer mist, taffeta type ribbon from Hobby Lobby
