Sketch Saturday- Sweet Chester!

Hi. Hope you've got a great weekend planned! It's Sketch Saturday time already! Firstly I must tell you some exciting news!! Sketch Saturday is looking for 7, yes 7, new team members!!!! Pop over to the blog for more details!

So onto today's challenge, a fabbie sketch by Jo....

Yep, another Christmas card! This time I've chosen to use Pollycraft's Sweet Chester. I think he makes a great Christmas card for a male so this is for my brother-in-law. Jo has chosen such an unusual shape for the image but I think it goes perfectly with the image I've chosen. So I coloured Chester with copics and usual lyra bottom shading. The papers are by Basic Grey called Nordic Holiday. I kept it fairy simple because the image is quite large but also because it's a male card. The large holly is made using a  Papertrey Ink die. I used the paper to represent the sentiment as it had words on it.

I'd like to enter this into:
Cute Card Thursday- food or drink
Basic Grey- used Nordic Holiday paper
Divas by Design- for the boys
Allsorts- card for man or boy
Shopping our stash- 3 or more DPs
Stamping for the weekend- at least 4 layers

Close up of the wee fella!

Jo's fantastic sketch! How unusual is that?!!
