Freshly Made Sketches 316

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

I'm pretty sure that I've been making Christmas cards non-stop for the last gazillion weeks!  I've actually had enough and this is the last Christmas card that [I think] I'm going to share in 2017.  Never say never, but I think I've got enough cards to cover my entire mailing list so I hope to turn to to other themes now.  BUT, I've got this one last Christmas card to share inspired by the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our design was created by Jen Timko and I am sure that you are going to love it.  It's got a wide open panel that is up for anything that your creative juices can think of.



My creative juices came up with this big sentiment that stretches across that wide open panel.  The edges of my card are full of glitter (paper) and I added a few sequins to make sure that this card was super sparkly in real life. 

The colors for my card were inspired by the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and they are looking for Christmas at AAA Cards so I'll be adding this over there as well.


Thanks for stopping by.  And I hope our Freshly Made Sketches design team will inspire you to play along with us!

This is fa-la-la-wonderful!! Lucky you, I haven't even counted how many cards I need yet! I'd better get busy!

This is beautiful!
I thought I was done with making Christmas then suddenly I needed a few more...thinking after these few, I'll be done for good. Not that I don't enjoy making Christmas cards but I'm ready for a different theme, too! ;)
