SSSC141.....Holly Jolly

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:

Another great sketch from Karen and I am on a Christmas card kick this week so I pulled out the Stampin Up set "Festive & Fun". This is a fun Holiday set.
I stamped the image onto some white card stock with black stazon ink. I then used my aqua painter and ink pads to color.
The DS paper I used is from the Letters to Santa paper pack. I love the colors in that pack.
The base of the card is made with Riding Hood Red and then I followed that with some crumb cake and then the DSP.
The square under the main image is some of the Silver glimmer paper from Stampin' Up and the scallops are made from the same glimmer paper.

The side strip is made up of some DSP from the same pack and then a piece of chocolate chip card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF. The only embellishment on here is the little bow red taffeta bow on the wreath. I love the country feel of this card.

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:

Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

So pretty! I love all of the layers and the pop of glimmer paper. The bitty ribbon on the wreath is a great touch. Thanks for the inspiration to try this fabuous sketch this week. :)
