Tuesday Morning Sketches is starting to become a habit with me!

I like the challenge of not knowing what’s coming up! This weeks challenge was a bit tougher than usual, but hopefully I’ve pulled it off. Here is this week’s sketch by Melissa Craig.

I don’t know why but all those circles said Christmas! So that’s what I went with. My other option was hula-hoops, and those wouldn’t fit on my card!

I have had this Sizzix Poinsettia die for awhile. The set is actually a Pillow Box Framelits from Sizzix, and the Poinsettia is the flower that comes in the set. The pillow box is a breeze to put together and great for gift making. That’s for another post!

As you can see I added plenty of sparkle and shine to my card  to give it lots of Christmas cheer! I created that background with a brick wall stencil using the Tim Holtz mini Distress inks. Hopefully, I achieved a “weathered” look on my background.

I used the Scrapbook.com clear glitter brush pen to give the flower and leaves their shimmer. Personally, I think this pen is better than many on the market, as I have not had it “overflow” while I was using it yet!

 

I will be cross posting this to Krafty Chicks Challenges as well, because it’s Christmas! Yay!

Thanks again to Tuesday Morning Sketches for a great sketch, and lots of fun this week!
