Sketch Frenzy Friday 12/5/14

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Wow!  This week came up on me fast! It's SFF already and I am so excited to show you our sketch for this week. The very talented Karen Gibson created it for us. I really like  that she asked for several layers and embellishments. So you know I had a good time with those challenges lol!

Here is Karen's sketch.

This is what I came up with;

I did some sewing on the plaid piece of DSP on the bottom of the card with Linen Thread,  and I wrapped white Bakers Twine around the white strips of the Garden Green DSP. All of the DSP used on this card are from the Trim the Tree DSP Paper Pack. I really like the texture of Kraft card stock and try to use it when ever I can. It is very heavy card stock and embosses very well.
The double tag embellishment was made with the Decorative Label Punch once in Garden Green and again in Whisper White. I was going to use the Organza Ribbon on it but, I didn't like that it was too wide for what I needed so, I trimmed it down just a bit to the solid white stripe in the center of the ribbon.  I think this width is a much better size for the tag.
I stamped the sentiment twice, once in Mossy Meadow on Kraft cs and then again on Whisper White cs. I then cut out just the word "Cheer" in white and mounted that piece on top of the sentiment to give it some pop! Cherry Cobbler was the additional card stock color I used in making this card.

Here is a look at the inside;
