This week Maria posted the following sketch challenge:
I always tend to get nervous when I see sketchs that include circles, ovals, etc. Thats just never been my strong point, even with all the new dies/embellishments, etc that can create a shape for you in just a matter of seconds. I dove right into it though and included something else I've never done before--chipboard. I recently bought a set of chipboard on Scrapbooksteals.com and I figured I might as well try and do something with it :)
Here is the card I came up with. I sanded the paper on the tree to give it a more weathered look and I also added red stickles to the middle of all the red stars/snowflakes on the paper. Its very sparkly in person! I also paper pierced along the larger oval.
