Freshly Made Sketches 267!

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Welcome back to the all-Christmas all-the-time channel!  Yep, you guessed it - I've got another Christmas card to show you.  This time for the brand new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is our intrepid traveler Jen Timko!  Don't you just love the possibilities with this fantastic sketch?

I chose this pretty color combo of purples and silver because I had intended to play along with a particular color challenge, but I wasn't paying attention to the dates of that challenge properly and it closed already!  But the colors are beautiful and the silver gave me an excuse to use this snowflake die again.  Luckily I'm not too late to play along at Stamp Ink Paper where the theme is winter holiday.

I'm still slowly mailing out my Christmas cards and hopefully I'll get them all done by Friday.  That's my plan anyway!  Tomorrow I've got a card to show you that actually has nothing to do with Christmas!  And I even broke out my Distress inks and - dare I say it - actually did some sponging!  {gasp}

Our Freshly Made Sketches design team has some beautiful cards to show you this week so be sure to check them out.  I hope you can take some time to join us in the gallery!

Your purple Christmas Card is a nice break from the more traditional red and green.
