Freshly Made Sketches #14

Welcome back to another challenge from Freshly Made Sketches!  I am the hostess this week and this is my very first sketch!  I love square cards so it seemed perfect to use one this week.  I also know that in the middle of holiday card making I seem to end up with lots of designer paper scraps.  I hoped that this sketch would provide a way to use them.

When I intially designed the sketch I had intended to use it very literally with a snowflake from Northern Frost.  I realized, however, that I have been using that die a whole lot so wanted to shake it up a bit….but not too far.  I went with my go-to stamp set for the season this year, Bright Hopes.  I love this wreath!  Jen Mitchell has been using her Deck the Halls DSP from last year on a lot of cards lately and I have been admiring them all!  I went digging in my paper pile.  Low and behold…I had some!  Yippee!  And how pretty it is with the wreath!  I wanted to add a little bow to the wreath and chose to do another fork bow (tutorial here).  I used the Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon for this one.  I chose to put the sentiment in place of the snowflake and keep it clean.

Well, since the design team has already made some fabulous cards with the sketch, I am breathing a bit easier.  Make sure you stop over the the challenge site and see them.  I love the variety of interpretations!  I know you will show us even more cool ways to use the layout!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a great week!  See you again soon!

I think we are going to need to get together and weep a bit over Bright Hopes if it does carry over. 🙂 This so very elegant and lovely, Jen. It’s a very versatile sketch that I can see myself using a lot! Like maybe with the new framelits that just came in yesterday!
