Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I can't help being a wee little bit disappointed because we haven't had any participants in our latest As You See It Sketch, which I thought was really fun! So I decided to do a second card, this time a Christmas card, and it also uses the poinsettia prompt from JoAnn at Merry Monday:
I went non-traditional with my poinsettia from Joyful Christmas, coloring it with Sweet Sugarplum ink after embossing it with gold embossing powder on Shimmery White cardstock. Here we go:
It's too bad the photo doesn't really capture how pretty this is....I used a piece of Brushed Gold cardstock for my square panel, and the lacy image from Touches of Texture, stamped in Gold Encore ink, for my vertical image:
I added some sequins and a little burlap ribbon for an organic feel, then added a sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum on the inside:
I hope this will inspire you to play with our sketch this week....there are so many interesting possibilities with it!! Show us yours at As You See It!
No Cassidy pictures today, but I did snap this before I went into the post office...our postmaster really keeps his flower beds neat and tidy, and it's proof that spring actually will arrives SOMEtime!:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
