Holiday Sketch Challenge


Hello and happy Monday. Do you have some time to make a card this week? Since most of the challenge blogs have a break, i thought show you a sketch you could use if you feel inspired by it. Please take a look how Kristine, Bea and Carole all took a different spin on this sketch. If you like, please post your card with link to your site here so we can take a look at it. Lets have fun!!!

I would like to give you some infos what i used on my card. The pictures does not really show how pretty this vine paper from K&Company sparkles. There are also tiny corner embellishments made with crystal stickers on the paper with the font. On the envelope is the vine (both are vines are embellished with green Stickles) and i airbrushed the edges with E31 so it would not be so super white and have more an aged look. The sentiment can still be picked - I think this card works for many occasions. The back of the card is also decorated with some of the Designer Paper.
Stamps: Magnolia new "Jingle Jangle" Collection and to decorate the inside and envelope i used the vine stamp which you can find in the Shabby Chic Collection on the vine is green Stickles
DP/CS: K&Company, Stampin up
Embellishments: Stampin up, Martha Stewart (fond punch), Laces, Making Memories
Thank you Bea, Carole, Jaquelin and Kristine for helping me to make sample cards using this sketch so short notice!! You guys rock!!! xxx
