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.
Beautiful card this week! Love love love your color combo and you followed the sketch exactly. I'll be giving you a shout out on my blog when we post the new challenge on Monday!ReplyDelete
Wow, Lisa! For someone who don't like circles, I think you did a gorgeous job with the sketch challenge. I love the Christmas tree chipboard. . the pattern on the tree is very pretty! Thank you for playing in this weeks challenge. . .it's always fun to see you playing each week!ReplyDelete
