52CCT June Sketch Challenge

Hello dear crafty friends!  A special hello and welcome to my newest follower.
I'll be popping in to visit your blog soon and return the favor :o)

It's time for a new month of challenges and a new DT hostess 
at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  The first challenge of each month is a Sketch
Challenge and Louise has chosen this great one for us to create with.
Feel free to rotate it, flip it, make it square, use any shape in the middle, 
as long as we can still see the basic layout it's all fine with us.

We also have a new guest designer joining in the fun this month.
Please help us welcome Marie from NJ Stamping Queen!

Here's my take on this great sketch:
Digital image by Rick St. Dennis -Angel Wreath

And here's something I've been wanting to do since I started
taking coloring classes to improve my coloring -
show you the copics I used to make this card.

How cool is this?  Would you ever guess that it took this many colors 
 for this angel wreath? I think I'm getting better at this coloring thing :o)!

Hope you like this card and it has inspired you to make a 
wonderful Christmas card using this sketch.
You still have several months to build up your Christmas card
stash. If you play along with us at 52CCT each week, you'll 
have a nice bunch of beautiful cards in no time :o:

My talented and lovely 52CCT DT pals have made some awesome creations
for your inspiration as well.  Please go visit them and see what they've done.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year Round - June Challenge - Angels

Thanks so much for stopping by! Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
