Hello stampers,
     Happy Sketch Frenzy Friday y'all! I hope your week went by pretty quickly after that long holiday weekend.
     Today's card once again uses my favorite color scheme this season along with Festival Of Trees from the Holiday Catalog. It sure seems like I bought a lot of sets from the Holiday Catalog this year doesn't it? Ok, maybe just a little but I really "needed" these sets, they were some of my favorite holiday sets in a long time.
     I think today I will start with the top of my card & work my way down. On Whisper White Card Stock I stamped one of the trees from the Festival Of Trees Stamp Set in Pool Party & added the Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle to some of the ornaments for sparkle. I then stamped a greeting from the Christmas Bliss Stamp Set in Smoky Slate. This was backed by Lost Lagoon Card Stock, followed by a pieced of Smoky Slate that I used the Scallop Tag Punch on & added the Pool Party Bakers Twine. The next layer I used Pool Party embossed with the Decorative Dots TIEF, before adding it to the next layer I adhered the Lost Lagoon Satin Stitched Ribbon then over top of it added the Smoky Slate Taffeta Ribbon. This was then adhered to the base of the card which was Lost Lagoon.
     This week's sketch was created by Karen Gibson. Hop on over to the SFF blog & check out what the other team members did. Better yet, make your own card based on the sketch below & add your link to this week's challenge. Happy sketching & enjoy your weekend!
