Sketch Frenzy Friday 112511

Happy Friday all! Hope you had a GREAT Thanksgiving!!

Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini tour! We hope you'll play along this week!! The sketch this week was created by me!! This is always a challenge for me, but I love see what the other girls do with it! Can't wait!!

Here is my card


based on this sketch:


My "oval" is very subtle, but it's there!! I need to figure out my Christmas card this weekend, so this is step one down that creative path!! Card base is Always Artichoke. I cut a 2nd piece of Always Artichoke and Textured it with the Snow Burst and wooden craft frame to leave an unembossed oval in the center of the card. In that oval I stamped the Christmas Tree from Christmas Lodge in Versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Next I covered the oval with a scrap of paper and spritzed the rest of the layer with Vanilla Shimmer Smootch Spritz. Always an adventure but love the result!! Across the bottom is a strip of Very Vanilla Velvet ribbon. The saying is from Four the Holidays.
