Freshly Made Sketches #111
I just really liked this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - so perfect and the ornament on it just calls out for a Christmas card. This sketch may go into my favorites file - to be used over and over again....
But for now it is the holiday theme.
I used my favorite Sizzix Embossing Folder. The snowflake is from Memory Box, but it gave me grief again. It would not cut through the glitter paper, despite all the tricks I know now - extra shimming, wax paper, running it through the Big shot in different positions and multiple times.....I just gave up and pretended I wanted all those little pieces still in there, after I fuzzy cut a fair amount of the outside.... I colored some of those with Copics - looks quite nice after all....The sentiment is Mama Elephant Merry Greetings
So hard to photograph the glitz - the closeup shows it best - it looks really pretty!
I am also linking this card with the CHNC challenge - Anything Christmas
and Simon Says Wednesday challenge - CAS
