Another Sweet Sketch!

While trying to discover the inner reasons that bring me to blue for Valentine, I made a card for a challenge, for my favorite challenge, Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

I decided to go for a winter/snow theme and... it is turned out in pinks! For such a theme I would expect ice blue colors but no, I preferred pinks...

Anyway, this is my favorite challenge because every time I entered a card I received so many sweet comments! Unfortunately, I don't manage to enter each week but I always look forward to wednesdays to see what they come up with.

This is the sketch to follow:

Luckily enough for me, the sponsor is DigiStamp Boutique: I really love their digis and I have some to choose from to make my card.

I colored the digi with watercolor pencils and used a patterned paper from Dovecraft and some punched snowflakes embellished with little rhinestones.

I love the way it turned out, even if it has no traditional color for a winter card. I'm not a winter person so some pink helps me to get through cold and dark days!

Well, better go. Monday morning means house cleaning... but I'm happy because today it means Post Office too!
On Saturday, while sending some cards to a US Customer, I found out that our Postal Service raised shipping fees on Jan. 01 and I was shocked because it was an incredible increase. It took some time to figure out how to update the shop, crossing my fingers that this increase wouldn't affect my sales. 

Have a nice week!
