That makes it the perfect day to escape to my craft room and make something that's not a Christmas card!
How cute is Jessica with her horse!?!
I love the simple layout to this sketch - I feel it keeps the focus on the stamp.
After colouring with alcohol markers, I chose to use some paisley and barn board papers to keep kind of a western/country feel to my card and each layer is trimmed in dark brown. I used a light blue chalk pencil smudged with paper towel to soften it around the outside edge and finished it off with my favourite - gumdrops!
