52CCT April 2014 Sketch Challenge

Hello friends!  We have a whole new month of challenges coming at you in April from 52CCT!  
We have a new Guest Designer -  Pat Couder.
I love her classy style.  If you go visit her blog - Created by Pat - I'll just bet you'll agree :o)

This month Deborah is our hostess and her first weekly challenge is this sketch:
You can flip the sketch or make it a square shape to suite your own creative style,
but please be sure we can still see the bones of the sketch.

For my DT creation this week I chose to make a tall, skinny card (3.5" x 6").
Digital image by Bugaboo - "ginger bowl"

I colored the image with my copic sketch markers (my favorite way to color an image) 
E25, E27, YG13, YG15, E31, E35, Y11, Y13, Y15, R29 and N00
then I fussy cut around the image and popped it up a bit with dimension dots.

So...are you ready to make a Christmas card this week?  
The rest of our lovely DT at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown have made some wonderful creations
to share with and inspire you this week based on Deborah's great sketch.  
Please go visit them and say "hi".  We love to hear from you!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Card Challenges #18 - Favorite Coloring Medium (copic markers).
 Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - April 2014 "Anything Goes"
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Gingerbread Challenge
Sister Act Card Challenges - Challenge #51 "Anything Goes"

Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
