SFF 122311

Good morning, Friends! It's Friday! And Christmas is only two days away! We are with my family right now and it is SO nice! Time to relax and enjoy each other's company! But I do want to remind you that there is a new sketch challenge at Sketch Frenzy Friday! This week's sketch was created by Robbie Rubala. Take a look!

Cute!! And different! I wasn't sure what I was going to do with that curvy area. But after going through my stamps I got an idea! Take a look!

Now, my curve goes the other direction than the sketch, but it is still the same idea. And I do love the way this turned out! My card base is textured Basic Grey. I stamped the image from Come to Bethlehem in black StazOn onto Basic Grey (being careful to not ink up the star part of the image) and cut the curved area by hand. I attached this to a piece of the beautiful silver glimmer paper. Then I cut a piece of Basic Black and attached a piece of the beautiful flocked paper from the Mocha Morning designer paper to the bottom and my stamped image is glued to the Basic Black piece. The Basic Black taffeta ribbon is tied around all this to hide the seam between the silver glimmer and the flocked papers. Then I popped this panel up onto my card base. The last thing I did was to stamp the star part of the image onto the back side of the silver glimmer paper and cut it out. I then popped this up on the card.

I know this will be a busy week for all but I hope that there might be some time for you to join us for this week's challenge. We always love to see what you come up with!
