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!
