Cards & Things Sketch Challenge #54

Hello my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!. I found another really cool sketch challenge over at Krista's blog This one was not as easy as it looked. I had a lot of fun trying to get all the colors and paper to match. All products used in making this card are all from Stampin Up. The three Bells & The Merry Christmas images are from the Bells & Boughs stamp set from Stampin' Up's New Holiday Mini Catalog pg.19 clear mount $14.95. In addition, I used Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Red Riding Hood Red Card Stock $6.95. Also from the new Holiday Mini I used Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper only $9.95 pg. 18. I used our Designer Label Punch to punch out one red piece then cut it in half lengthwise. I stamped Merry Christmas on  a Sahara Sand piece of card stock and punched the sentiment out. I then sponged a little color on this Sahara Sand piece to add depth and a little pearl for bling. I attached the Riding Hood Red pieces to the top and bottom of the punched out sentiment. I gold embossed the Bells and used my ink pads and a blender pen to color them in. I layered the Bells on a piece of Shara Sand and Always Artichoke. For fun I added 3 little pearls to each holly berry. I cut a 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 strip of the DSP and added that to the top of the front of the card. To finishe the card off, I added 3 large pearl halves to the left hand side of the card as required by the challenge. Well there you have it. I hope you enjoy this challenge. Now go create something fun.
