Sweet Sunday Sketch #91

Happy Sunday!!! It's time for another FABULOUS Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!

Today I've kept mine nice and CAS!!! Oh and a little Christmassy too!!! Gotta get that STASH all ready ... there isn't really that long to go!!! And when it comes to mass producing Christmas cards... i've found (the HARD way) that CAS is definately the way to go!!

Soooo.... here is my card:-

And here is the Sketch:-

I've used a little creative license this week... and flipped the oval but left the stripes going the same way as the sketch... oohhh.. RULE BREAKER.. right?... bwhahah

I am LOVING my Contemp Christmas set at the moment... oh wait.. you've probably guessed that considering my last .. um.. FOUR posts have all used it!!! .. I can't promise that there will be a break in that transmission any time soon... hahaha.

I've used Crumb Cake (Kraft), Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler (LOVING!!!) for this card. The tree was stamped in Old Olive and the base coloured using my Marker and stamped onto Vanilla cardstock and then a little Rhinestone was put up onto the star.... Chrissy trees need sparkle ... right? hahah. I then added a scalloped border around the image in Cherry Cobbler ( did I mention LOVE at the moment!!) To get the little scallop border I punched out two Scallop Ovals using my SU! Punch then Cut one of the in half length ways and attached to either side of the the tree image then cut the top and bottom of the other scallop and attached to the top and bottom of the image... have I confused you???? if you want more deets just let me know!!

The strips going across the card are made by attaching double sided tape and plonking the entire contents of my Dazzling Diamonds pot on to them then replonking the contents back into the pot before brushing away the left over sparkles... my desk and I are VERY sparkly at the moment!! hahaha

That's pretty much it!!! See CAS!!!
