HMSC17, HMCC14, A Child Is Born

I am still trying to beat this sinusitis and bronchititis I have and still not feeling too well. Oh well there is always tomorrow. I had such plans for today in my stamp room :(

This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE and I combined it with the sketch and color combo challenge presented every Saturday on H&M'S OWNER - HEATHER ROLIN'S BLOG. I took my inspiration from several combined pics of the IC today. My main image is stamped in black stazon then colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended w/gamsol then matted on bravo burgandy. The next panel is old olive pattern paper matted on choc chip. I inked the sentiment with bravo burgandy marker for omitting and stamped part of it on the top then the remainder on the bottom. Tied bravo burgandy ribbon on the left. This is a gorgeous new Christmas set recently released and can be found at H & M STAMP COMPANY and see the coupon on the left sidebar, that's right Heather is giving up to 20% off purchases.

Come and play along with the color and/or sketch, enter the correct key words of HMCC14 and/ or HMSC17 and link back to Heather's blog to be entered in the drawing.
