Deck The Halls for Sketch #31

This weeks sketch I had such a vision for it, but when the time came for me to create it, nothing was working the way I wanted it too.  So now I was stumped, what was I going to create.  Here is this weeks sketch: 

I think I made about 3 different cards before I was happy with the final product. Here is my card:

I started with a Colonial White Cardbase, and added a neutral patterned design from the retired Mistletoe paper.  /I then fussy cut out the Holly from the reverse side of paper, and placed them in a random pattern.  I distressed the whole card with Chocolate Ink, and then stamped the sentiment from Yuletide Greetings(D1553) in New England Ivy.  I layered the sentiment onto Cranberry CS and 3D Foam popped the sentiment.  Added a bow in some gold twine I had on hand to finish it off.

I hope you have time to grab a cup of java, and to hop on over to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog where you can see the amazing creations from our Design Team.

  1. I always love seeing YOUR take on your own sketches, Michelle, and somehow its good to know that it sometimes takes you a few tries to get it right! But you did get it right here--I loved that Mistletoe paper and the touch of red and gold totally dresses it up!


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
