Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #452


Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  My oldest starts high school today.  I can't believe it.  How is that even possible?  Wasn't he just starting JK yesterday? I remember his first day like it was just yesterday and here we are 10 years later!  My youngest has one day of school this week so he's enjoying a few more golf games before school starts up!  

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our hostess this week is our colour pairing queen, Amy O'Neill!   Head over to Amy's blog if you want to see some incredible cards.  She can mix and match colours, patterns and embellishments like no one else!  Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

At first those two leaves threw me.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do.  I love fall cards and I'm not sure why I didn't pull out some fall'ish stuff but I also saw some holly leaves and berries and thought that they would work!  

My Mossy Meadow stampin' blend is on it's last legs and I wasn't sure it would last to colour the holly leaves but it did!  Yay!  I decided to add a stitched border and another stitched label for my sentiment and call it a day!  Of course I still had to add some sequins because...well, why not?!


Cardstock: Whisper White, Mossy Meadow

Stamps: Christmas Gleaming

Ink: Versamark, Memento Black

Other: Sweetly Stitched Dies, Stitched Rectangular Frames, Stampin Blends (Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler), Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, Copper Embossing Folder, Copper Sequins

  1. Beautiful Christmas card. I love the holly leaves in the corners. The die cut frame and the embossed sentiment are great touches.

  2. This is gorgeous, Jen! I love all the details -- from the stitched frame to the perfectly colored sprigs of holly.

  3. This is so pretty. The piercing detail, the texture, the gold! All of it is amazing.

  4. I love how this is so classic with the frame and embossing, but with a touch of trendy goodness in the corners! So pretty!
