SSSC48 Happy Christmas

Good Sunday Morning Peeps! It is my favorite time of the week......time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!

Here is the sketch we are working with this week:

My card is made with the cute "Wandering Words" set. My snowflakes are from the "Serene Snowflake" set.

I started the card with a base of real red and followed that with a layer of soft suede and then the DS paper is from the Christmas Cocoa Speciality pack. I stamped the main image with real red classic ink onto whisper white card stock. I tilted my stamp slightly to straighten out the image just a bit so it would fit my panel better. I matted with soft suede and real red. The snowflakes are stamped with soft suede and punched out with a 1/2 inch circle punch and matted onto a real red 3/4 inch circle. I added a gold brad to the centers.

For the strip behind the main image I turned my DS paper at an angle to get the stripes going that way. I matted this piece with real red. The main image is mounted to the card with dimensionals. Finally I added a gold spiral clip and tied a bit of soft suede ribbon around it.

Come join in on the fun and create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen's blog and link your card using Mr. Linky so all of us can see your creation!
