Freshly Made Sketches 61

Happy Thursday!  I was designing some cards for my last Christmas card stamp camp, and I thought I would incorporate this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch:
I hadn’t used this Come to Bethlehem set this year, and the large focal panel seemed perfect for it:
Elegant Eggplant is another neglected item in my craft room lately, so I used it as my base, added a Brushed Gold mat and some luxurious velveteen ribbon.  The star and the ribbon are both embellished with a simple gold brad.
Inside and out, the sentiments were stamped with Encore Gold ink.  Thanks for visiting today!
Doesn’t everyone enjoy a gingersnap while sitting on the potty?  (BTW, we have not yet started training, but it’s on the horizon!)

Gorgeous color combination, LeAnne! The gold and Elegant Eggplant color combination is so rich and perfect for a card honoring our King, the real reason for the Season! And the snippet of velvet trim adds the final touch of richness. Well done!

And now, I am hungry for some gingersnap cookies too. *sigh*

Love those colors together and what a great Christmas stamp. So traditional. I always say you need at least one of those in your stash.
Looks like Cassidy is almost ready to use that potty chair. Almost.

I never use Eggplant - and it is so elegant here - especially with that velvet ribbon! And oh that baby girl is growing up so fast!

Haha - I guess any place is a good place to enjoy a gingersnap...and to share one too;) Good luck with the training when it comes along.
What an elegant Christmas card. I have always love this set but sadly don't own it. This velveteen ribbon is gorgeous.

This is beautiful LeAnne! The elegant eggplant is fit for a King! Love the gold accents! Cassidy sure has lost her baby look. She is such a big girl sitting on her potty!
