Freshly Made Sketches - Challenge #301


Hi there ~
I'm back to share a card I created for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. The sketch is by Jen B. and I love it!

I would like to get back to creating some Christmas cards, so that's how I played with the sketch ~


I started by creating my own plaid pattern with Post-It tape, using 2 shades of green and one of red, then used PTI Spruce & Sprigs for the holly and berries. The scalloped panel is from MFT and the sentiment is from an old Hero Arts stamp set.

So...that's it for me ~ I hope everyone has a fun and crafty week ahead!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

This plaid is reminding me of a gorgeous plaid organdy Christmas dress my life-sized doll had ... surely made by Mom, out of scraps that a friend gave her!
Your card is divine, Barb... LOve the glossy berries, and those sprigs of holly are a beautiful addition!
