Freshly Made Sketches 113

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for a new sketch reveal at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Cindy is our hostess and she's given us a super clean sketch.  I embellished mine a bit and did a Christmas theme since I'm busy working on my Christmas card stash *insert smile here*



As luck would have it this week CAS-ual Fridays is teaming up with Curtain Call for a Christmas themed challenge and the inspiration photo gave me the colors for my card.  I liked the rustic stockings hanging from the fireplace so I grabbed Kraft card stock.  And the blue around the fireplace reminded me of the retired Bayou Blue so I used that for some accents   It didn't photograph well but it really is more blue than it looks here.  And finally the sparkly ornaments on the tree called for Silver Glimmer paper and a few sequins.



Beautiful cards abound from the ever-amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team (but you knew that anyway)!  I hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Christmas Carols (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)
Paper:  Kraft (Avery Elle); Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Silver Glimmer, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Blue Bayou
Accessories:  Snowflake Trio die (amuse studio); Make a Snowflake die (Taylored Expressions); Winter Blend sequins (Avery Elle)
