GDT SophistiCat Challenge: Squiggle Oscar

NB This is a scheduled post, as my teeth/mouth are still driving me crazy, so I hope Mr Blogger plays nice!

Happy Monday everyone!  It's a happy Monday for me, because today I get to be a Guest Designer for Challenge #11 over at the SophistiCat Challenge Blog.  The lovely Lisa asked me to set the challenge, so I whipped up the following sketch (in SophistiCat's colours, of course!):

I chose to use this adorable Oscar on a sledge (soon-to-be-released) image from Squiggle Stamps.  I coloured him using Copics and glittered up the pom-pom on his hat with Stickles:

When I received the stamped images of these soon-to-be-released Squiggle Stamps, I knew instantly that my neglected Imaginisce papers would be perfect for this cutie, using Oscar's hat for inspiration for the 'hat' paper, and the shape of Oscar's sledge mirroring the Candy Cane paper!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Creative Inspirations ... Challenge #35 New or Neglected : My image is brand new, and my papers are new and neglected, as I bought them a month ago and they haven't been used yet!

2. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge #86 Glitter me Silly : To use glitter (I've used stickles on the pom-pom of Oscar's bobble hat!).

3. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ... Challenge #58 Four Seasons : Well, winter always means 'Christmas' to me, LOL!

Well, that's it from me for another day (...that's if Mr Blogger has played nice and posted this scheduled post!).  Hope you like my card and hope to see you at the SophstiCat's challenge this week!

Have a great day!

Hugs, Sem x
