Last SS challenge for 2009

Hiya! :)
Yes this week is the last challenge for 2009 over at Sketch Saturday.
The design team are having a well earned rest next week to enjoy Christmas with their loved ones.
Our challenge this week is being sponsored by a lady who also helped Sketch Saturday become the success it is today, the very lovely and extremely talented Sandra Dry, who is offering our challenge winner 6 wonderful digi images of their choice :)
As you know Sandra was on the DT until recently, we were sad to see her go but are so proud that she was once part of this fantastic team of crafting friends.
And as our sponsor this week she has also made a card! YAY! like old times ;)

Sandra very kindly sent me this 'Christmas Simples' image (a download of course) so that I could use it on my card this week, this is perfect for a card for my Son, he often imitates Aleksandr Meerkat, saying 'simples!'
I printed out the sentiment on the pc, yes I know the sentiment isn't in the same place as the one on the sketch, and the word 'son' isn't either, but it just wouldn't work with this design if I had placed it correctly because I wanted to cut out the meerkat. Forgive me?
If you want to see real professional examples that follow the sketch perfectly then please go visit the blogs of the amazing DT, I promise that you won't be disappointed ;)

Ok, my card...
I used the large circle in the sketch as a bauble, and used my favourite SU 'ski slope' papers again, I just can't get enough of these papers, I love them! (as you can probably tell!)
I coloured the image with ProMarkers and added a bit of sparkle to his hat and scarf with my clear glitter gel pen.
Inside the card I have printed... 'Simples!'

Thanks for dropping by, and thank you to those of you who have taken part in our challenges throughout 2009 xx
