SCACD WCMD challenge

I hope you all had a great weekend. Did you get lots of stamping done on WCMD? Unfortunately we spent most of WCMD dealing with doctors and dentists. Beckett woke up Saturday morning with half of his face completely swollen. Unfortunately a couple weeks ago when he hit his chin at the hotel, he not only cut his chin open but he cracked a tooth. Ever since the accident his tooth can been bothering him but we just thought his jaw was sore from the fall. Unfortunately for 2 weeks the cracked tooth just got infected. Saturday afternoon after a trip to the urgent care and then to the emergency dentist he had to go through a very traumatic tooth extraction.
Here is a picture of him and his poor swollen face:
Thankfully the antibiotics and pain killers have helped out a lot. He seems to be doing a lot better today. He still looks awful but the swelling should start going down soon.
So with all of that craziness yesterday, my WCMD stamping had to be postponed until today.
I got a little bit of time to stamp this afternoon so I decided to play along with the challenge posted over on the SCACD blog. They had a fun 2 part challenge...sketch & color. The color requirement was to use Christmas colors: red, green, gold, silver, white.
Here is their sketch:
I flipped the sketch to work with my image. I used this adorable Victoria Case image "Matthew" from SCACD. Isn't he so cute...totally reminds me of Beckett. (Sorry for the wonky lighting - I just finished my card at 7pm and the natural light is zero. I'll try and take a better photo in the morning)
Check out the resemblance between the card and the picture of Beckett...the fact that he is wearing a red shirt with a green dino is a total coincidence.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all had a great weekend!
