Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Have you stopped by the Stamping 411 Challenge Blog lately? Oh, you should this week to see the sketch - it is quite an easy one and I took the opportunity to use my new favortie nestibilities die. I cut the larger matting out of Cherry Cobbler - OH, HOW I LOVE THIS COLOR!! I think this will be my new favorite Christmas color. I stamped the image on Very Vanilla and edged it with Always Artichoke. Then, the hardest part, deciding how to use the new DSP - this paper is GORGEOUS and will be available for purchase starting on Wednesday. You have GOT to get some of that paper. Anyway, I didn't want to destroy the whole sheet that this piece comes from - it has wonderful evergreen and poinsettia images on it. I then punched the border with a MS border punch and layered my sentiment image - popped - off this. I added the bow which is the Early Espresso satin ribbon. I really like the look of the satin ribbon - especially around the holidays. My final touch was the pearls. Another I LOVE THESE!! I like the variety of sizes I get. I made this card in maybe 15 minutes this morning before I had to go out to the dentist. I like how it turned out and can see several more of these in similar fashion.

Thanks for stopping by the paper spa. Now on to new projects.
