Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #312

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone has had a great start to their week.  We have had some early mornings this week with the time change!  It was so lovely to get an extra hour of sleep but the boys are waking up super early these days.  I must say that I also am waking up around 4 am every day!  Hopefully after a few more days we'll be used to it!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of our favourite French Design Team member, Cecile Ribon!   Cecile has the most amazing die cuts on her cards and they always inspire me!  Please head over to her blog and check her beautiful creations out!

Of course I'm still trying to tackle the Christmas card problem!  I will be tackling that one for a while at the rate I'm going!  I need to put some additional effort into it!  I decided to combine some Copper foil and some basic black for this card.  I just couldn't help myself!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Copper Foil
Stamps: Festive Flurry, Christmas Pines
Ink: Versamark
Other: Copper Embossing Powder, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Sequins, Festive Flurry Dies, Dimsionals

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

Have a fabulous day!
