Polka Doodles Sketch and Colour Challenge

Morning folks on this wet and windy Friday. We had yet more rain in the night and it really is weather for ducks at the moment.
I'm here today with the next Polka Doodles challenge which has been set by head doodler Nikky and as she really loves a sketch, she's come up with this one:
She also wants us to use only 3 colours with the sketch and I chose red, green and gold so you can probably guess which type of card I made - yup! I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my collection as I'm quite determined not to wait until December this year.
I chose the background papers from the Jingle Jangle CD as I just love the jazzy text papers on there. I made a mat for my green harlequin panel from gold leather texture card and stuck this to a square card covered in the text paper.
I the cute Polka Doodles angel in stocking in black Memento ink and coloured her with Promarkers in my colours. I cut her out and added her to the green panel with foam tape. I added embellishments made from the smallest holly sprays from the Wreath section of the Paper Boutique 2 Creative Christmas CD with a greeting from the Xmas Doodles stamp set.

Don't forget that there are now only a few days left to the fabulous Letraset competition to win an entire set of Aquamarkers. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this great set or a runner up prize is to show us your colouring skills using your favourite colouring medium - how easy is that! The competition runs until 31 August so don't delay if you still want to enter!
