SSSC96.......A Merry Christmas and a Goodbye

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:

I loved this fun sketch, I started my card with a base of Crumb Cake card stock. I followed that up with some cherry cobbler card stock and all of the DS paper is from the Deck the Halls paper pack. I stamped the Holly from the Stampin' Up Bells and Boughs stamp set with black stazon onto very vanilla card stock. I then stamped the sentiment from the same set with cherry cobbler ink below the holly. I colored the holly and berries in with my aqua painter and ink from the always artichoke ink pad and the berries are colored with cherry cobbler ink. I cut the square so as the top of the holly would be out of the box. I matted the image and sentiment piece with crumb cake card stock. I mounted with some foam tape. I added some cherry cobbler and very vanilla seam binding ribbon across the middle and tied a bow. I like the two tone effect. I added a vintage brad to the center of the bow. I used my 3/4 inch circle punch to make the scallop cherry cobbler border. To finish it off I added some crystal effects to the holly and berries and sprinkled a bit of diamond dust glitter over the glaze while it was wet.

Here is a detail shot, so you can see a bit of the shine and glitter:

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
