Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #73

(click on image to enlarge)
 YEP ... it's time once again for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!  This is a challenge blog for one & all!  If you like layers ... use the FANCY sketch ... if you like simple design, use the CAS (clean & simple) sketch!  Either way, you will be inspired and have a GREAT time!!
 For today's challenge I am using the FANCY sketch and I have used Priscilla's adorable image called "Charlie"  as my focus image ... isn't he just the cutest!?!  You can find Charlie and many other amazing digi images at Priscillastyles Store!

I have used markers for my coloring and liquid applique for the fur around his hat & cloak.  It looks so cool IRL with the puffy white trim ... too bad it doesn't look that good in the photo!  Use your imagination!!  LOL!!  The embellishments are left over from last year and I don't even know who the mfg. might be ... although I believe they were purchased at JoAnn Fabric & Gift's.

Other challenges this card qualifies for are:
Christmas Inspirations - stamps
The Crazy Challenge - no buttons or ribbons
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - Critter Mad!
One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Anything Goes
Christmas Card Challenge -
The Crafty Pad - Christmas Sparkle
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Anything Goes
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything Goes
Other Lovelies: Thoughtful Thursday Challenge - use digis

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I do hope you'll check out the Midnight Madness challenge and play along!  See you soon!!
