Hi friends! I'm over on the Viva la Verve Sketches blog today posting a recap for our November Week 4 sketch. You have until Thursday night (12/4) to get your November entries in to be eligible for our $100 gift voucher giveaway. Head on over to the VLV Sketches blog today for all the sketches and to see who ended up in my little viewfinder this week!
I loved this sketch by Marisa. Lots of fun layers and the perfect opportunity to use up some of the mountains of jingle bells I seem to amass each year! I think they're my favorite embellishment. Anyhow, I started my card with the candle image from Light My World. I loved this houndstooth paper, so decided to paper piece the candles in it. I paper pieced the poinsettias in paper from the same pack, then built all my layers, being sure to tuck my sentiment panel behind the far candle.
Each layer is sponged with antique linen distress ink and then matted with black cardstock. I finished off with a gold cording bow and some glitzy jingle bells up top, a few gold pearls on the poinsettias and some black liquid pearls to highlight each scallop.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day!
