Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: Seasonally Scattered

Another Friday is here and this is the last Friday to get everything done before the holidays start, how long is your To Do list?  Mine is crazy but I’m taking it one step at a time to make progress.  Today I have card I made for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge, quick and easy cards on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog, and decided to use it for my 30-Day Gratitude challenge card also (multitasking as much as possible!)  I decided to change things up and make a Christmas themed card that’s so soft and pretty, and it fits right in with all the cold and snow that has been in parts of the country this week.  I started with Smoky Slate for the cardbase and then added a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  Next I added a piece of All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  In the bottom corner I added three snowflakes from the Frosted Sequins Embellishments and then added rhinestones to the center of each snowflake for some extra sparkle.

For the stamped image I used the Seasonally Scattered Stamp set and added ink to the stamp (Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, and Pear Pizzaz) with sponge daubers to create a fun ink effect.  I cut this piece out with the Big Shot and Ovals Collection Framelit and made a mat using the Silver Glimmer Paper and the Labels Collection Framelits.  Since I wanted to make this a gratitude card I stamped the thank you greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched it out with the Small Oval Punch.  I sponged around the edge with Pear Pizzaz ink before attaching the oval to the cardfront with a dimensionals.

I have to admit this card looks over the top but I was able to pull it together in no time (that’s the beauty of making your own cards and projects, they look fancy and no one has to know how long they took, it’s our secret!!).
