Limelight Sketch Challenge #30


I made this for the Limelight Sketch Challenge this week. It was a fun sketch featuring patterned paper which I just so happen to have a TON of! I used some older Basic Grey Figgy Pudding for this card and since it was double sided cut a strip to use along the top for my sentiment.  The colors are some of my favorites for Christmas cards True Thyme and Cranberry Crisp (retired from SU) with the matching ribbon.  This also goes with a from Ladies, Ink to make 3 Christmas cards this month (here's #1!) :o)

The snow you see is actually the new Flower Soft Polar White which I LOVE!!!  I am definitely going to be getting more of this stuff...I see it on lots of Christmas cards this year!  

Blessings,


Card Deets:
Stamps: Tree Silhouettes (GKD) and Flaky Friends (SU)
Cardstock: True Thyme, Cranberry Crisp, VV and Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Ribbon, Nesties, Snowflake Brad

Ooohhh this is really pretty...I am ordering later today and will just HAVE to get some Petal Soft to try out. Clever little biscuit to do two challenges at once.....

Hey I also like how the ribbon is attached incrementally along the side....something a little different....

I am off now to check out all your other cards since I have been away.
