SFF 111811

Good morning everyone! Yea!! It's Friday!! Time for some fun with a sketch challenge from Sketch Frenzy Friday! This week's sketch was made by me! Take a look!

And here is what I finally came up with!

I don't know what it is but I have a much easier time with other people's sketches. When I have to come up with a card for my own sketch I get stumped. What is up with that? I wanted to do a card associated with Thanksgiving but I just couldn't get anything to work. So I went to Christmas. I love the look of the triangle shaped Christmas tree. I started with a card base of Garden Green and took a smaller piece of Garden Green and ran it through the Big Shot with the Snow Burst embossing folder. Then I used pieces of Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso to finish the sketch off. The tree part is made from a piece of Frostwood Lodge designer paper that was cut with the Perfect Pennants die. Then I cut a square of Early Espresso for the trunk. The tree is popped up on the card and then I added a 'star' with a rhinestone. Not much room for a greeting so I used 'merry' from the Pennant Parade set and stamped it in Early Espresso on Whisper White and flagged one end and put a silver mini brad in the other. 

Please click 'here' to see what Jennifer did with this sketch. I hope you will continue through the tour to see all the great designs and to get inspired. Then be sure to make your own creation and upload it to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog so that we can all take a look! I can't wait to see what you do! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
