Hello again friends!  Today at the Catch the Bug blog for Bugaboo's Christmas in July event, the challenge is a sketch:

and here is my card!

This adorable image is Moose Ornaments, and I love it!  He is so darn CUTE!  Of course, I colored with my alcohol markers, and added some metallic Gelly Roll pens to color the small ornament he is holding, and the toppers on the large ones.  I used the clear sparkle one to color in the white parts of his hat, and the little sparkle bits drawn around him.  White gel pen was added to his eyes, and the shine marks on the large ornaments.  The largest of Spellbinders Large Labels dies was used to die cut the image panel, and the green mat behind it was measured and cut with a trimmer.  For the designer papers, I used Spellbinders largest die in the Card Creator B set to trim them nicely.  The glitter transition piece was cut from a scrap of bronze glitter paper that I had die cut some stars from for a project a few years ago.  "Cheer" comes from a Holiday Sentiments stamp and die set from Recollections.  It is layered up 3 times with the green card stock, and the top was treated with some layers of clear Wink of Stella pen, and then a coat of Glossy Accents.
