Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I found this sketch to be a BIG challenge for me. This is totally stepping out of the box. I tried to do the wave with the Stampin' Up! Cutter Kit but I didn't have much luck with that. So what I ended up doing was printing out the sketch (I always print one out for my album) and I cut the wave out and used it as a pattern.

I'm not real thrilled with the card. I don't really care much for all the snowflakes on the wave. I think I over did it there!

The background was done using the "Ho Ho Ho" wheel. I just kept running it over the page until it was filled. Then I cut it to size and sponged the edges in Real Red.

The "Merry Christmas" was done on the computer.

Santa is from the "A Holly Jolly Christmas" set. I just love him and the snowman in that set, they are my favorite!

The snowflakes were made using the Martha Stewart snowflake punch. And I added some rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes because they looked worse without them.

I'm not real great outside the box. WAY out of my comfort zone and it shows!!!

I am not sure I will be posting on Thanksgiving day. It all depends on if I get my work done right away in the morning. We are not having our dinner until 5 or 6 pm. SO that may give me some time to play. I wish you all a very WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I think it's a cute card! I sympathize, though -- a few years ago I was doing a display at my library using the university logo, which had an odd-shaped wave in the middle of it. Our display was so large we had to buy two of the biggest poster boards at the art store and piece them together into the logo shape. We had SUCH a time of it!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love the end look of your creation, it would be stepping out of the box for me also on this sketch. You did a great job! Happy Thanksgiving.

I love, love, love this greeting card. I would love to work out of the box too, but I am not very good at it. This card just pops right out at you......... don't beat yourself up over this card - it is awesome.

Happy Thanksgiving!
