Sketch Saturday- Carolers!

Hallo folks! How goes it? I can't believe it's Saturday already so that can only mean it's Sketch Saturday time! Yay! We have another fabbie sketch for you to use- another classic I think- I've already made another card using this sketch!!

Today I've made a Christmas card using Mo Manning's Carolers 3 I think it's called. This has got to be one of my fav images of her's. It took absolutely yonks but there's so much detail, it's a total joy to colour! I coloured with usual copic, lyra, watercolour mix. These papers are by Authentique called Wonder. I hope you can see that this gorgeous ribbon is actually a forest green colour (not black!!) Loving the fish-tail banner Die-namics- soooo useful!!

I'd like to enter this into:
Crafts and Me- use a digi image
Inky Impressions- use a ribbon
Papertake Weekly- anything goes

Close up. Don't they look like they're singing their hearts out?!!

Even closer look! Such a gorgeous image to colour! 

Here is the fabbie sketch!

And our wonderful sponsor for this week is Simon Says Stamp! Yay!
