The winner will be randomly selected from among the qualifying entrants and announced Friday, February 13th.

* Just a note: if you do not have any Paper Pretties stamps but would like to play and use the challenge sketch, please feel free to do so! Maybe leave a link on this post so I can check out your fabulous work and leave a little love! :)

Now that you have seen the challenge would you like to see my sample? I thought so! I used the recently released to the public Gliding By Sophia.

After stamping Sophia I colored her with Copic markers, did some masking and then airbrushed the card stock around her with my airbrushing system and Copic markers B21 and B23. I inked the ice at the bottom with VersaMark, added Iridescent Ice embossing and heat set. I embellished the card with some brads, ribbon, buttons (yes, I sewed them onto the card) and a little bit of scalloped Creamy Caramel cardstock.

Now that I've shared my card I can't wait to see what you make with the sketch!
