Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge 155

Hello friends,

Today, I am playing along with another sketch challenge with Skipping Stones Design and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!  All of the fabulous sketches this month we are using at Skipping Stones Design were designed by Kelly Schirmer.  Ivanka Lentle and Jennie Harper are joining us this month as guest designers.

Using one of our featured sets this month, Christmas Song and this week's sketch, I created the following  card:

I die cut a frame from cream cardstock and stamped the tree image from Christmas Song in light green ink and outlined it with clear stickles.  What is it about this time of year that just begs for a dusting of glitter?  A banner  with the sentiment in a gorgeous font grounds the tree and buttons act as both accents and ornaments.  

The patterned paper is from My Mind' Eye that I picked up at Michael's a few weeks back. As much as I love the traditional red and greens for Christmas, pastels for the holidays stir something deep within my girly, shabby chic soul. 

Here is look at this week's sketch: 

Be sure to stop by the Skipping Stones blog to check out the other fantastic cards that our guests and design team created with this week's sketch.  While you are there, link up your own take on this week's sketch challenge! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a lovely Tuesday!
