Sketch 28

Woo hoo! I'm getting my Christmas cards done one at a time! I've got to find some time to sit down for a marathon and finish up, but until then I'll be happy with any progress I make.

This week the sketch at Unscripted Sketches is awesome! As usual, I modified my project quite a bit, but thankfully the US gals encourage that (whew). First, here is the sketch:

Now, my interpretation ~ flipped and condensed :

I hope you can see the elements I used from the sketch ... the 3 embellishments on one side, and 1 on the opposite, the sticker across the bottom, the square frame, etc. I like this one so much I plan to make a few more.

Now for fun, I want to show you the base card cut using a Cricut machine:

Yep, plain Jane (no offense to Jane). It's amazing what a little paper piecing and a few well placed embellishments can do for a card's confidence. hehe.

Hop on over to Unscripted Sketches and give the sketch a try. Be sure to use Mr. Linky so we can check out your projects too!

Supplies: Crafty Secrets sentiment (clear stamp), SU cardstock, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding pattern paper, pearls, Cricut Winter Wonderland cartridge, Memento Cocoa ink.

happy stampin',
