Freshly Made Sketches 209!

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

This is two weeks in a row that my Freshly Made Sketches card has been a Christmas card.  As always around this time of year I start to worry that I don't have enough Christmas cards made.  Luckily for me Jen Brum's sketch with a tree put me in mind of Christmas - but don't worry - you can use whatever shape want.  I didn't use a tree but I did use another iconic Christmas image.


The inspiration challenge at Tis' The Season had a bit of a muted-neutral look to it so that inspired the colors of my card.  I almost used green on the sentiment - to echo the green of the pine sprigs - but decided that carrying on with my neutral theme looked better.


I hope you have some time to check out the cards at Freshly Made Sketches because there's a lot of inspiration to be had there.  We'd love to see your interpretation of this sketch in the gallery!  I hope you can join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
