SSSC131....Merry Christmas

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

Well, as you can see I flipped the sketch.  I wanted to use some of my new stuff that will be available from Stampin' Up's Holiday mini catalog on September 1st. I used the new paper called "Frostwood Lodge". It is so cool, love the woodsy/country feel of it. I made my stockings with the "Stocking Builder Punch". There is a matching stamp set for this punch too. I embossed one of the stockings with yet another new item the "Snow Burst" Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I used some Early Espresso bakers twine to "hang" the stockings and to add a bow. The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler card stock and I also used some Early Espresso card stock to mat some of the layers.

The sweet little sentiment on here is from another new Stampin Up set called "Forest Festivities". I added a few silver pearls, non SU to finish it off.

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.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Karen-Paper Playhouse- is taking a few weeks off

Looks like the new stocking punch is going to be a popular one, along with the matching stamp since so many fun options we can make with it. Love how you used the different papers & embossing folder for this one.
