Lets Have A "Classy Christmas"

Greetings ~
It's been so quiet here on my blog this week.  Believe it or not, I think I've been working on more projects than I have time to complete. Crazy me!!! This is what happens when my co-workers decide that they want this and that, and I go crazy trying to complete the things they want. I think there are just not enough hours in the day...
However, this morning I took some time out to just color and create for the fun of it. I decided to use one of the Belles 'n Whistles stamps that I had not yet had a chance to use. Meet "Sass and Class" from the SweetArt Girls II set. She makes such a "Classy" Christmas card, doesn't she?

I followed this weeks sketch over at Sketch Saturday, I fell in love with the sketch the minute I saw it.

I love the way this one turned out, although I'm not so sure I should have used clear crackle paint over the image. I'm still trying to get used to the effects of the clear crackle paint. I Love the way white looks, but the clear seems to be taking me a while to get used to.

I colored my image using Copics, as well as some Stampin' up markers for some of the small areas.  The Christmas tree behind the image is just randomly drawn in with Copics.  The sentiment is from one of the holiday sets from The Greeting Farm.  I did a tiny bit of heat embossing on the doily that is tucked behind my image.  I think that it adds just a touch of glitz, that such a classy girl deserves.  *wink*
