I LOVE sketch challenges! They are so helpful to me because I need something to get me on the right track. I just have such a hard time sitting down and deciding how to layout my card. Just having something in front of me, even though I may change it up a bit, is such a weight off my shoulders! Then my creative process begins! So here is the great sketch Pam came up with for our challenge this week.Isn't it great? All day, I was trying to figure out what to do with those circles, but it all came together. I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my stash of cards I need to send out (soon!).I'm really very happy with this card. This stamp is from an Inkadinkadoo clear stamp set called Ornate Christmas. I used this last year in black and thought it would look just as good in red. Pam's sketch was perfect for it. I ran the Riding Hood Red pieces through the textile folder. It sort of mimics the design in the stamp. The ribbon is also Riding Hood Red, and I finished it off with some prima poinsettia flowers, gold glitter dots, and the MS ferns. I just purchased a bunch of dies not to long ago, and this one was just the right one.
The Just Us Girls team has more delightful cards for you using this sketch (and I think we all did holiday cards!), so you really need to stop by the Just Us Girls blog to see them! And please stop by their personal blogs to leave some love!
If you decide to play, link your direct post to Mr. Linky on the JUGS blog. We'd love to see what you do with this sketch!
I have another post after this one...a sneak peek of a new fairy from Paper Makeup Stamps. Please take a look because it's a really cute one! Have a great weekend!
