Sunday Stamps Challenge #168 - Warmth of the Season

It's been a while since I've done a sketch challenge and, surprisingly, I enjoyed it very much.  Staying within the parameters of the sketch was a welcome challenge and I love the results with the card that I created.

I decided to stay with white and blue plus a bit of dazzle.  My base is Whisper White followed by a layer of Night of Navy.  Then I took a piece of Watercolour Paper and went to town with it and my blue Brusho watercolour crystals.  Between spraying and lightly stroking the crystals with a brush, the background is gorgeous.  I think it shows off the Night of Navy circle beautifully, not to mention the dazzling die-cut from the Hearts Come Home bundle.  For my lower rectangle, I turned to a pretty piece of retired designer paper and then added the strip of Night of Navy heat embossed in white with the sentiment from the same bundle.  A few sequins and the card is done!

I'm playing along with the Sunday Stamps Challenge #168 (SSC168) with this card.

I'm also playing along with the SUO #190 challenge for the favourite Christmas image.
