Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #166
Happy Wednesday! I trust you're each having a great week and not too busy getting ready for Christmas! I got a bit more wrapping done yesterday so I'm one step closer to being ready! Today I need to tackle some baking for a cookie exchange I'm in. Mom...no comments!!! We have an "elf on the shelf" at our house who is very, very naughty. The boys sure get a kick out of him and his antics but this mom is running out of creative ideas!
Being Wednesday, we have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is the lovely Karren Johnson. Karren is so creative and makes such fabulous cards! I am always envious of the beautiful things she comes up with! She has a great sketch for you this week that I'm sure you will have a fun time working with.
Surprisingly, this is the first version of this card. I know, you can all get over being shocked! I knew what I wanted and it kind of came together - and in less time than it usually does for which I am very thankful! The Lovely as a Tree stamp set is one of my favourites and I couldn't wait to use it. Unfortunately I had to cut off one of the trees and I forgot to add in the bow...that being said, it would have cut off one of the trees!
I wanted to keep neutral colours for this card but then realized it needed a slight pop of colour so I added some old Red Riding Hood Ruffled Ribbon that I had. I think it adds the right amount of colours. I left a sentiment off this card because the lady I'm making it for requested a few cards that were blank.
Cardstock: Smokey Slate, Silver
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Hardwood
Ink: Smokey Slate, Versamark
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Red Riding Hood Ribbon, Dimensionals.
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you have the time to head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful cards the design team has created for your viewing pleasure.
Have a wonderful day!
