Today I have such a treat for you! Another fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. It is brought to you by our sketch hostess Rita Wright. As always, she comes up with something fun and fresh! Love it!
I tried to keep it clean and played with using watercoloring as one of the “panels”. I like the effect and how the stitched frame works with it. I layered two Stitched Rectangle Dies (Simon Says Stamp) to create the frame…easy peasy. All the stamps from from Paper Pumpkin. The poinsettia is the flower from October’s kit layered and colored with Zig Markers. The holly and sentiment come from the November kit. The picture doesn’t do it any justice but the flower and holly are topped with Clear Wink of Stella and the sparkle in person is lovely. I cheated a little on the scalloped element because I just could not seem to make it work with any strips of paper there. So I added Gold Thread instead. Hope Rita gives me a little latitude on that! A little gold sequin in the center of the flower ties into the gold.
I hope you enjoy this week’s inspiration and all that the design team has created. I’ll be back on Friday with a couple more quick holiday cards because, well, it is time for QUICK holiday cards now isn’t it?! *smile* See you then!
