Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #316

Happy Wednesday!  How is your Christmas shopping coming along?  I am almost finished...I think!  I am waiting on a few things that are supposed to be delivered soon but I think I'm in better shape than I was last year. I've started wrapping gifts - it's not my favourite job so I figured if I started early and got them done I wouldn't have to dread it anymore!!!  My trusty cat helper hasn't been so helpful and tends to just lay all over the paper!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is our favourite pilot Jen Timko!  Jen makes the most gorgeous cards!  She can colour with the best of them and comes up with the most creative concepts for cards!  Head over to her blog and check them out!

So I think this is the last Christmas card that I have to make.  I love the Merry Little Christmas DSP and thought it would look great with some black and silver paper!  Very non traditional colours but I still kinda like it!  I added some rhinestones to the centres of some of the snowflakes since I thought they needed a little boost of sparkle!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
DSP: Merry Little Christmas
Stamps: Christmas Pines
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Dimesionals, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created to inspire you!

Have a fabulous day!
