Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating #100!


Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating it's 100th Challenge today and they are asking some of the past designers to be a part of the celebration. I was a Guest Designer for Sketch #8! way back in the day.. Ha Ha The Party is a Blog Hop so you'll want to make sure you head over to their Blog and see a list of all the past Designers who are joining in and you can't have a Party without Prizes!!!

They are going Retro and using the very first Sketch for this week's Challenge!


I was feeling a little Christmas with my Card... I'm totally loving this Festive Flurry set from the Holiday Mini Catalog! 


I started with a Smoky Slate Card base and then I added a piece of Winter Frost DSP. I cut a piece of Coastal Cabana and ran it through the Big Shot with the Chevron Embossing folder and then I stamped the sentiment from Merry Little Christmas onto a piece of Whisper White in Island Indigo. Have you played with the 3/4" Chevron ribbon yet, It's gorgeous! I added a piece of that in Smoky Slate as well. Along the top right I added some Rhinestones instead of the usual brads, It needed some Bling!


I die cut 3 Snowflakes from Festive Flurry with the coordinating Dies and layered them with dimensionals. Then for the center I added more Bling with a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.  This may be one of my Christmas Cards!!! I stamped the Snowflakes in Island Indigo, Costal Cabana & Smoky Slate but if you wanted some extra bling you could use the Metallic Encore Pad in Silver for that center snowflake. 

Head over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog and see what the Design Team created and join in the Party!
