Welcome Christmas - Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday!  I had a great crafting weekend.  I spent the last three days at the RemARKable Hot Retreat hosted by Janet Wakeland and loved spending time with some fabulously creative women and getting lots done (and very little sleep).  One of the things I had to do was make my card for this weeks Stamping 411 challange and what better thing than having the option to use a stamp set that I don't own for this challenge, in this case Welcome Christmas.   

The main image is stamped in early espresso, then I stamped the "Joy" saying over top with Wild Wasabi ink (which was stamped off first) to create a subtle effect.  The DSP is Holly Berry Bouquet and I used some of the yummy Early Espresso 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon.  The greeting is from the Perfect Punches stamp set and is punched out with the scallop circle punch.  For the accent behind the greeting I punched out a snowflake using the snowflake punch and red glimmer paper.  I had to cut apart the snowflake and attached the individual pieces behind the scallop circle so it would show up.

I love this card, very classic and so pretty in person with all the texture.

Hope you have a great week.

Happy stamping,

Pin It!
