It is another fabulous Wednesday and I get to share a new Freshly Made Sketches Challenge with you. This week’s sketch is courtesy of…me! I know this is kind of a classic sketch but I love how it leaves room for lots of interpretation. Just take a look at the design team to see what I mean. All those wonderful cards from one sketch! Love it!!
Leave it to me to design a sketch and then change it! That is what happens when you design the sketch well before you make the card! Hmmm…. In any case, I am so happy with this card. We made this one at my Holiday Catalog Class last week and we all had a good time with it! The star of the show are Stampin’ Up’s Glimmer Papers, both Silver and Champagne. The Snow Flurry Die creates this amazing snowflake and is just perfect for the sketch. I tried a number of colored backgrounds before I settled on this tone-on-tone Very Vanilla. I always love this look and was so happy that it works well here. The sentiment is from More Merry Messages and was sponged with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint then stamped (I used a Sponge Dauber). It keeps the sentiment subtle but adds another element of sparkle! Because apparently all that shine wasn’t enough, I finished the snowflake with a Vintage Faceted Button and a Basic Rhinestone. The button picks up the shimmer from the snowflake and is so awesome!
I can’t wait to see what everyone makes with the sketch this week! Make sure you hop on over to the challenge site to see all the inspiration! Thanks for stopping in today. See you again soon!
