I haven't done a sketch challenge in a long time, but when I happened upon this weeks' sketch, I just felt a holiday card. Actually, there are so many ideas I had for this layout, so I'll be using it again.
I've been dying to use the 3-piece set of ornament stamps, matching framelit and coordinating paper piercer mat. I kept struggling what to back them with and, low and behold, they fit perfectly inside the Labels 10 Spellbinder diecut. It feels good when something like that happens.
I added ornament ef's to the main and red panels. Liquid pearls where the ornament holder is, dazzling diamonds in the center of each circular section of the stamp and popped up the ornaments and the spellbinder framings. I kept trying to add more, but every time I did, it took away from the clean look, so I left "as is"!
Thanks for taking a look and for the sketch this week!

Pamzi this is amazing. Your border punch goes perfectly with you focal point. This card is so very pretty and perfect for the Holidays. Girl you busted me up with your comments on the picture of Nancy and I. Sure do wish it were possible for all of us to get together-sure would be a blast and something we would never forget. Love you!!!

Hmmm what is zis!!! Red and green - red and green ... is this a port / star board card? Was your husband not in the Navy? Therefore, despite it slightly resembling a Christmas card, I suspect this is a hubby love card! Yes. Very clever is so many ways - disguising this fabby " Christmas Card " to send a message to the Navy. Girl, you use that low IQ to it's greatest advantage.
