52CCT - Sketch ...

.... Hello!  It's time for our new sketch at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and as it's the first Saturday of the month we kick off with our sketch challenge.  Fabiola is our host this month and she has a super sketch for us to play with.  You are allowed to flip it, change the shape of the panel and add as few or as many embellishments are you like.  Here's my take:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Ornamental Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Holiday Ornaments Framelits; Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles - #3 and #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Mirri Card - Gold, Red, Green; Martha Stewart Punch - Ornaments; SU Card - Real Red; Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder

I decided that instead of scallops I'd use my Christmas Ornament border punch to create the layers.  I kept the little gold ornaments and inlaid them in the red border.  I cut a panel white panel onto which I adhered a gold tinsel ornament.  I finished the front with a silver snowflake charm.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of red card, a white panel with a faux stitched border and added a simple, elegant greeting.

Do check out our blog to see what the rest of the team have made.

We have a long weekend here in the States - it's Labour Day on Monday.  And, as we are having a last burst of summer, we'll be off visiting friends and heading out to the beach!  Still feels strange saying "beach" in the middle of land-locked Michigan!  Have a great weekend.
