SSSC93.......Christmas Greetings




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:





Well, I am doing it again, I love the vintage, can't get enough!!! I am a bit late jumping on the band wagon here, as usual, but it is fun!

I started this card with a base of soft suede card stock and then I followed that up with some crumb cake and then the DS paper is from the Deck the Halls paper pack. The main image is from the A Cardinal Christmas set is stamped with black stazon onto very vanilla card stock and colored with cherry cobbler, always artichoke and more mustard and my aqua painter. I added some crumb cake around the outside of the image and sponged it around the edges. I distressed the edges with the edge of my scissors and tore and folded them a bit. I matted it with Cherry cobbler card stock that I distressed as well. The sentiment is from the Grateful Greetings stamp set. I stamped with Early Espresso ink onto very vanilla card stock. I used my decorative label punch to punch it out. I matted this with cherry cobbler by punching two decorative labels and cutting them in half. I finished it with some of the Cherry Cobbler seam binding with a bow and an antique brad.

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.
