52 Christmas Card Throwdown-January Week 1

Can you believe it is almost June already?  At the present time, I have 8 made towards my 100 needed.  Most of my cards are handed out.  Only about 40 are mailed.   I figure I have 28 weeks left to making Christmas cards. So I don't go crazy at the end of the year, I need to make 3+ cards a week.  Think I can do it?  I am going to give it my best shot!

One way to get on track is to get back with the challenges from 52 Christmas Card Throwndown challenges.  I will start with the challenges in January and work my way through to get caught up.  Each week is a different but same challenges.
Week 1 is always a sketch
Week 2 is always about color
Week 3 is always about a Theme they choose
Week 4 is some type of Technique or Stash

So here I go....Week 1 challenge-a Sketch

Today I used a stamp from Stamping Bella called  Christmas Mouse.  I stamped the mouse twice and cut one out after I colored it with my Copics.  I love using a glue to prop up the image slightly to get a 3D effect for the image.  Sometimes the dimensionals are just too thick for me.  The one I use is a Universal Transparant glue from Olba Company.
The background was made using a stencil and 2 colors of Nuvo glimmer paste...Pink Opal and Garnet Red.  

Well that is one done for the week.  Off to make another card.  I need a birthday card next.

Have a great crafty day!
