Jolliest Time of the Year Wednesday Sketch Challenge

 The final Wednesday before Christmas.  I tried to make a lot of 3-D items this year instead of all cards but Wednesdays I just HAD to participate in the Sketch Challenges over at SplitCoastStampers.  I don't like to miss the Wednesday challenge.

I liked this layout a lot.  That circle in the #2 panel has a lot of possibilities!!
I went with a simple card this time, I have a ton of things to work on before Christmas eve but I still wanted to participate in the Sketch Challenge.

I got to make use of the new die that is going to be available soon.  A friend of mine let me cut out a few to play with at a later date and this was one of those "later dates."  I trimmed the die a bit so it would fit in the circle.  It's a nice size doily die and I can me getting a lot of use out of it.  I'm hoping that it will cut felt!!  

Let's get back to my card before I get SO into that die that I start planning other uses for it!  LOL  I stamped my image in using StazOn.  I prefer that ink because I never know if I'm going to be coloring over the black ink and making a mess.  With StazOn you don't have to worry about water coloring over it. Blender pens sometime lift the ink but that is only if you work the area too much. 

I added a snowflake to the top of the new die and I added a pearl in the middle to cover the hole that both of them have.  SO simple, SO quick and cute too!  Ya can't ask for more!

Thank you for visiting today,
