Happy Holidays


I adore how this card turned out.  I'm usually a "straight and narrow" stamper, I have a hard time creating cards with cock-eyed pieces but I do like a good challenge.

This is the last Sketch for You to Try.  I've loved Jen's sketches and am sad that this will be the very last one!


I'm excited that this year I completed all 12 of the sketches for this challenge.


I'm also including this card for the current challenge over at the Paper Loft travel blog for a holiday challenge.

**********************************
Card details:
Stamps: Happy Holly-days from Our Craft Lounge and Icons Sentiments from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Confetti White, Echo Park Season's Greetings
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishments: Washi Tape from Freckled Fawn, circle spellbinders die, rhinestones colored with copic

For my next card as I've been creating so many Christmas cards, I used the new Retro Sketches #40 on this card.  I used some more washi tape on this one :-)  I'm seriously thinking I'll be using some of the washi on Christmas gifts this year.
