CES Challenges DT card......christmas with Kenny K

Good morning everyone how are you all? Hope you are all managing in this darn snow.....it may look pretty but I'm rather pooped off with it now.....it can come back crimbo eve so it will be nice surprise when we all awaken on Crimbo Day!! Oooohh wouldn't that be nice a lovely white crimbo......well we can dream, this will prob be our crimbo weather lol.
Anyway its Saturday so you know what thats means........yayyyy its time forrrrr....
Thank you for all your Vintage Crimbo cards last week they were all absolutely amazing. This week its Elisa's turn to choose the challenge & this week the challenge is a sketch.
Here is my card....
This is Mrs Claus & I've made this card for my Mr Claus, my fabby hubby.....I wanted something sexy for my hubby's card.....if you knew Craig you would understand why lol!! Anyway as soon as I thought of a sexy image I straight away thought of Kenny K.....what image could be sexier than this!!!!
Can you see what the sketch is from my card.........no well maybe this will help you lol...

Fab simple sketch that is great to work with.....the girlies enjoyed using this.

Mrs Claus close-up. She is coloured with mainly Promarkers, her boots & sack are coloured with Copics & tiny little bits of pencil were added to the odd little bit for deeper shading.......I really do love the effect you can get from pencil. The fur on her hat, coat & boots are all dusted with glitter.

The inside I decorated as well 7 actually remembered to take a piccie before I wrote in it lol. The small verse is computer generated & something I quickly came up with to go with the image lol. The card was cut using my nestie thru the bigshot.

Normally I wouldn't put flowers on a male card but I think 1 single red rose can be let by, after all its romantic......
I wanted it to look as tho she was standing underneath this mistletoe on the paper but I think the image was a little too big.....it still worked to some degree tho & I love digi's for the fact you can have them any size....bigger is always better lol.
Materials used & links....
Papers-Websters Pages, Dew Drops, Red Rose, Scalloped card, card for stamped image & Promarkers are all from - Crafty Emma's Store
Mrs Clause digi image - Kenny K

Sentiments (except larger 1 inside) - Whimsy Stamps
All paper was distressed with my strssy tool & inked with Vintage Photo distress ink. The heart was cut using MS punch coloured with a Promarker then a light dusting of glitter added.
Pop on over to the challenge to have a looksie at the prize & to look at my fab teamies creations which are stunning as always.
My hubby loved this card....he says I have to get a red santie gown now pmsl.
