This week at Sugar Creek Hollow, we have a wonderful sketch to challenge you with. I love this sketch because you can make a card that can be dressed up and fancy or even clean and simple. If you are like me and have a pile of holiday cards yet to make, this sketch will be very helpful when I have to go into mass production mode.
In the meantime, I have used this very special stamp set called Baby Jesus from the Sugar Creek Hollow store to make my take on the sketch.
I changed the colour of Baby Jesus from black & white to sepia and cut him out using my classic oval Nestabilities die and sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges. I then cut two more ovals to frame him. The sentiment scroll was hand cut and then added to a Nestabilities tag. I added lots of pearls to the frame and a couple to the tag. The gorgeous linen paper at the top is some that I picked up in England and the bottom is card stock that I embossed and sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I added two rows of lace back to back with a piece of copper satin ribbon.
You must check out the variations to this sketch that my design team mates have created. This talented group of ladies has created some inspiring works of art. Then we would love to see you enter your sketch card in our challenge. One winner will receive a digi of their choice from the store.
