ODBDSLC262 Sketch Challenge

Hello!  Christmas is less than two months away - can you believe it?  Have you started on your plans yet? Making Christmas cards is about as far as I've gotten.  :)

I followed this week's Sketch Challenge at ODBD using papers from the Winter Collection 2014 and dies from the Splendorous Stars, Lovely Leaves, and Small Bow die sets.

I heat embossed the lyrics from Snowflakes Stars with gold embossing powder.  I added a cluster of greenery as well as a red bow and some rhinestones to bring out the red matting.  The star is cut from silver metal craft foil.

  1. What a stunning take on the sketch my friend!! I just love your combo of metallics and designer paper with the added foliage and bow!! Stunning framing of the beautiful sentiment depicting the true meaning of Christmas!!!

  2. I so LOVE that song Diana! It gives me goosies up and down my arms when they sing, "Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices, oh night devine, oh night when Christ was born..." Good gravy, I'm getting goosies just thinking about it!
    Anyway, I love your silver and gold and the gold embossed sentiment, the flourishes of foliage below and that wonderful red bow! Brilliant my friend!

  3. Diana, love your gorgeous card!! This song is one of my favorites and the colors that you have chosen are the perfect complement!! Love the use of the new bow dies as well as the star and leaves- just delightful!! Hugs and have a blessed week, my friend!

  4. Beautiful Diana! I love your little details in the corner with the greens and bow! Those papers look fabulous together too! Nice combo mixing the silver and gold together from that pack!

  5. Oh Diana this is so gorgeous!!! I love the beautiful pop of red with that gorgeous bow!
