Sketch Frenzy Friday: Mingle all the Way

Good morning and Happy Friday!  It has been a crazy first week of the holiday season and I can't believe we have less than three weeks until Christmas.  So much to do so we can enjoy all the special memories of this tie of year.  Of course I had to make a Christmas card for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday card sketch challenge.  This was such a fun sketch this week, I liked all the different elements to really help dress up the card.

I started with Pool Party cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper for a fun design and the color inspiration.  Next I attached a couple pieces of Lost Lagoon 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon (I have to admit I love all our ribbons but the taffeta is has always been my favorite!).

For the main stamped piece I used the Mingle All the Way stamp set and stamped the greeting on Whisper White cardstock with Memonto ink (this has become by go to black ink for it's crisp images and no smearing or bleeding when I color in the images).  I used Stampin' Write markers to color in the words and the little holiday cocktail.  The greeting is matted with Pear Pizzaz cardstock.

Next I took a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create the accent and then used some Pear Pizzaz 3/4" Chevron Ribbon and Whisper White Baker's Twine for the final decorative accents.

I love how these soft colors work together for such a dreamy Christmas greeting, so fun!  Make sure to take time to check out all the other design team cards for inspiration and then play along and you can use this sketch for one of your holiday projects this weekend.
