Evergreen – A Sketch Challenge

There is such a wonderful sketch on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  I like when we try ‘something new’ and diagonals are definitely not something we have in our sketches very often!

Didn’t this turn out pretty?  I thought so too!  The base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I would LOVE to tell you the name of the dsp I used on this but I am writing this while I am away from home, I do not have my catalog or mini and I am tooooooo tired to look up the information.  However, it is NOT Snow Festival or the Festive paper pack.  It’s the one with the Red Flocked paper in there.  I’m SURE you can find it from THAT description!  LOL!!!  I layered an Early Espresso Ribbon Lace Strip under it and a champagne glitter strip about it.  I made a ‘bow’ (click here for my tutorial) using Very Vanilla Seam Binding and a Very Vanilla brad, added it to the diagonal panel then added this to the card front. I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade (with a little Early Espresso for the trunk) on Very Vanilla cardstock, that gold embossed the loopy Christmas tree on top of it.  This is layered onto Early Espresso then onto the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.  The greeting is from Petite Pairs and was stamped in Early Espresso.  The star was punched from the Champagne Glimmer paper using the little start punch from the Merry Mini punch set.
