My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Holly Wreath - SSS76


Well, It's Saturday already and that means another great sketch challenge over at The Sweet Stop. Korin comes uhp with the greatest sketches every Saturday, so why not try one out this week. You can use any stamps you like and we DT members love visiting your blogs to see your artwork.

My card today swas made with one of the new Sweet 'n Sassy Digi stamps released just yesterday. It's a fantastic Holly Wreath. The Season's Greetings does not come with it but I printed the wreath a little bigger then I should have and couldn't fit the sentiment where it belonged on the sketch.

The papers are all from the Mistletoe collection from Close to my Heart. The Red Bling is also from CTMH.

I dotted the holly berries with glue and added red glittter. I was going to add red stickles, but misplaced my bottle. Wouldn't you know it, as soon as I finished the card, I found my stitckles. You see, I have a 14 month old grandson who walks around all day swiping things from my craft table. We call him Swiper. I think he watches too much Dora the Explorer!!!
I also used the green spica glitter pens on the green of the wreath for a little extra sparkle.

The hand stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
