Sketch challenges are my favorite because, for me, the layout of all my elements is the most difficult part. With a sketch challenge, it's already done for me! Claire loves layers...and glitz...and glam! So I had to make sure that my card for her sketch lived up to ALL of those elements. I think I managed a few...
I think this is one layered and glitzy card, don't you?! I used the beautiful Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP for all my layers and the elegant color combination of black, gold and white. This paper is so gorgeous--with a rich, glossy finish and elegant patterns--every sheet is a winner!
On top of the Basic Black base is a layer of Gold Foil paper embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder--another beauty. So pretty in metallic.
I heat embossed these gorgeous trees from the Wonderland stamp set onto some gold striped DSP. The sentiment was also heat embossed onto cardstock Vellum and wrapped around the main panel and adhered to the back.
And how pretty are these wooden Snowflake Elements? Especially when paired with Iced Rhinestones and Gold Metallic Thread.
I really like how this one turned out and it all started with Claire's fantastic sketch! I hope that you will play along with the sketch before our challenge ends on Friday, October 2nd at Noon (PDT). Before you go, be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team with their fabulous creations....thanks for stopping by!
