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.

Christmas Rose and Candles



Tis the season for Christmas Card making! 

My card today is using a fantastic pre-colored digi from Fred She Said called Christmas Rose.
I used a set of Spellbinder dies to cut image and mat.
The rose was fussy cut twice. Once with leaves and one just the rose. These were layered with foam tape to add some dimension. 

Red glitter was added to all the tiny red berried and then to the holly berries in the upper corners. Orange and yellow glitter was used on the candle flames. Clear Wink of Stella was used on the rose for a little extra shimmer.

The sentiment and papers are from some of my retired stash from Close to my Heart. Sentiment was heat embossed for a raised affect.

Challenges for this card:
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - Use some Red
Scrapbook Blessings  - Use Red, Green and White
Great Impressions - Bling on the Holidays
The Glory of Christmas - Glitter and/or Shine
Lacy Sunshine - Tic Tac Toe - I actually used all options but one
Digi's Designs - Bow, Die Cuts, Flowers
