Timeless Tuesday Sketch

My girl Silke is today's hostess for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge and she has not one but TWO fun sketches for everyone to choose from. I used the circle sketch and made a Christmas card...



I had this brilliant plan that I'd make two Christmas cards each month through the year so that come December, there wouldn't be so much to do. Well, I'm behind on that plan.....right, LeAnne? {wink} By now I should be working on my sixth card. Instead this is my SECOND one so far.....but who's counting? lol!

I used my Winter Bouquet set that I got from Stamper's Dream. This set is sold out, but Michelle has lots of other Flourishes sets in her inventory including the newest Friendly Reminders set. The embossed/DP circle is up on foam tape and so is the oval sentiment. I glittered up the chipboard snowflake by covering it with Diamond Glaze and then sprinkling on some loose red glitter. The ribbon is black velvet (very Christmas-y, don't ya think?) and the circle card base was made with my largest circle Nestabilities.

Have an awesome day!

Cute Xmas Card! I love the sparkly red snowflake. I committed to making 5 Xmas Cards a month, and althought I've kept up every month so far, I haven't made any yet this month. I'd better get going! Its on the list!
