Here is Card Patterns Sketch #144:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I started with a card base of GKD Fresh Asparagus and layered with patterned papers from the Graphic 45 Christmas Past 8x8 pad. My vintage image is a digi called A Day of Skating from Create With TLC. It was offered as a freebie during last week's Create With TLC Winter Wonderland Blog Hop. I printed it on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I added a bit of Ice Glitter to the snowy hills in the background. The sentiment is from the Shiny and Bright set, also from Create With TLC. The image and sentiment panels were cut with Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities. I added some gold pearl accents around the scalloped frames with Gold Liquid Pearls. I used some of the beautiful hand-dyed ribbon and Baker's Twine from My Craft Spot that Kim generously provided to the DT. An old button from my stash finished my vintage Christmas card.
My card is also for two other challenges I like to do: this week's Color Throwdown #170:
and the current challenge at Through The Craftroom Door #15 (holiday theme and use at least three embellishments on your project - I used seam binding, Baker's Twine, glitter, Liquid Pearls and a button).
