TGF's 12 Days of Christmas Sketches - Sketch 4

Happy Happy Tuesday!!!

I have another very cool card to show you today
and I'm following the 4th Sketch in the
12 Days of Christmas Sketches that
The Greeting Farm is doing.

Here is the sketch for today

well I just couldn't help myself, I had to rotate it around
and do things just a little bit different!
That's where the fun is, right?
Check out this hip girl!!!

It's Goth Roxy... What do you think?
Sadly I had to call my 14 year old son to the room
and ask him HOW to go about coloring her!
I don't know anything about these Gothic Styles
But since he's the one who's in high school
I guess he knows!

However, he was NOT happy that I colored that
bear purple.  He wanted it to be black.
I just didn't want a black bear against a black shirt!
So I told him to suck it up and deal! LOL
I compromised and didn't put any color in her cheeks
because "NO NO NO... She is so pale, she's almost white,
and her lips are NOT PINK MOM, they are black!"

Okay - Okay... I got it!!!
Geeeez.... Kids these days!

Don't even ask me what that circle thing with the gems
is, and the ribbon, well I wanted to put a flower,
and he said "Oh Mom, you're going to make it look
all girly... Don't do it!"

FINE THEN.... I just have to put SOMETHING there.
So, a circle with a silver cord, okay good enough!

This card is DEFINITELY not my style!
It came out fairly cute though I think!
