Gettin' Sketchy With it...

Hello All!

I'd like to thank everyone who's been weighing in on the Santa wrapping, vs. not wrapping gifts.  I'll leave the blog candy open until the end of the weekend on that post -- so go and weigh in if you want a chance at your choice of a digi image from Pink Cat Studio!

Now -- as for today's sketch.  Pam is our hostess this week, and she gave us a GREAT sketch to use:

I knew I wanted to do something 'Christmassy'.  I got out my Brushed Gold CS, and some glittered paper from DCWV.

I thought the circles on the layout would make some great ornaments, so that's just what I did...I punched out two circles (the avocado one is 1 3/8", and the smaller one is 1")  and stamped some images from Rustic Snowflakes in fresh snow ink, and then adhered them to the front of the card with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Signature Christmas, it's embossed in white on a piece of Brushed Gold CS that was cut out with a Labels 4 die.  Then, I just finished it off with a touch of ribbon...

Be sure to stop by the rest of the team's blogs, they all did an amazing job with the sketch this week!
 
Hope you'll make some time to play along this weekend too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the ornaments you created, Tracey! I thought they were a stamp (you and Pam both created ornaments that I thought were stamps...you guys are very clever!). I love how crisp and clean your card is! Great job with the sketch...such a pretty, pretty card!

Tracey- I LOVE how you made those ornaments! How creative! The border punch makes a perfect ornament topper! I have to use this idea - how fantastic is that!?! I love the CAS look of your awesome card too.
Thanks so much for the great inspiration!
