Sketch Frenzy Friday 122311

Happy Friday all! Hope your Christmas planning and preparations are progressing well! I feel like I'm making a dent, but will probably still have a few long days ahead!! As you know, Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini tour! Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Robbie Rubala.

I had fun with this one! Felt the need to create after so much time doing everything but stamping! My card base is Real Red with a Marina Mist accent layer. The snowflakes were embossed with the Snowburst folder on Shimmery White card stock. I used the Cutter Kit (item 106958, page 208) to to the curved bottom edge on the snowflake layer. I used the Snow Swirled set. The greeting is stamped on the left side of the Marina Mist, just under the curve. The large flake was stamped on Shimmery White in Real Red and punched with the 1-3/8" punch. I jazzed it up with Rhinestones and layered it onto a Real Red 2-3/8" Scallop Circle. On the scallop circle, I used my White Gel Pen to add a dot to each scallop. That element is attached with dimensionals to the snowflake background. Along the curved line I added some small snowflakes. They were also stamped in Real Red on Shimmery White but punched with the 1/2" circle punch. I attached them with Mini Glue dots and added a Rhinestone to the center of each. Finally, a Real Rel Satin ribbon is knotted around the Marina Mist.

Merry Christmas all! I hope to be back on Saturday with my Christmas card of the year, and maybe with a look back at all the Christmas cards of my past. We shall see :)
