Freshly Made Sketches 410

It's been a week since I've posted here!  Last week was one of those where long nights at work were just not conducive to getting crafty.  It's good that this week I am able to slow down and enjoy some time with my ink and paper!  And I'm just in time for our newest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Linda is our hostess and her sketch pointed me in the direction of some new Christmas stamps that I got recently.



In addition to the sketch I used the colors at Color Dare to create this Christmas Card.  And at The Paper Players they want me to go into the woods.  Luckily on my trip there I found all these trees!  I wanted the vertical layer at the bottom of the sketch to be kind of subtle so it is made of vellum with a gold embossed sentiment.




Thanks for stopping by!  My fellow Freshly Made Sketches teammates have made some fantastic cards with this sketch which I am sure will inspire you to play along with us.  I hope to see you in the gallery!
