Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I love sketches! When I need inspiration to make a card I start looking for sketches and it always gets me started.
Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.
I love the scallops and buttons!
Here is my Christmas version of this sketch...
I was also inspired by a gift box in the latest Stampin' Success Magazine (a monthly publication for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators). The box used these colors; Pool Party, Real Red, Soft Suede and the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set (#123764). I pretty much turned the box into a card using this sketch. One thing I feel the need to explain is that the embossed images at the bottom are holly leaves and berries, since you can not tell in the photo. I used all the stamps from this set in my card, I am not sure why, but that makes me happy. I also used our new Dazzling Details Glitter Glue on my pine cone. I like the look that it gives, but in hind sight this pinecone image is so striking I think I liked it better with out the glitter.
I hope that you will play along with us at Stampin' Royalty! It's super easy, make a card using our sketch and leave a link to our post of your card! You will also want to click over to Stampin' Royalty to see what my fellow Stampin' Goddesses have done with this sketch!!!
