Sparkle Creations Challenge #13 and a Preview

Post 1/2: If you are looking for my My Time Made Easy Final October Group post, please scroll up!

Hello! It's time another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! Thanks to all of you who played along last week! Each week we will post an all new challenge at this time (9 PM PST on Mondays). For all the details, please visit the SCRS blog. This week is a sketch challenge, and it is also Day 2 of October previews. Today is Caroling Josh! Sem, Sparkle and I are previewing Josh today.

The stamp includes the complete standing Josh, but I cut out the top portion to fit my layout better. I colored Josh with Copic markers and paired him with some paper from Echo Park Merry Christmas collection. The Dec 25 element is a sticker which I matted and added with foam tape. I didn't want to go too girly with this image, so I added some natural twill and some shiny silver pearls to finish this off.
For more inspiration, please visit the SCRS blog to see the design team's wonderful creations (and more peeks) or their individual blogs:
