A very PRETTY Sweet Stamps Christmas Card

26 Jul

Wow it is 2am California time and I am just getting this posted!  Even worse?  I have to get up in 2 1/2 hours and go to work:(

We are still doing our Christmas in July theme on the Sweet Stamps.com blog.

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch.

Remember how I like to be difficult and do things like ROTATE the sketch?  Here is how I did my card, by rotating the sketch this way:

I used 2 different Sweet Stamps:



I also used some paper from my new favorite line, Authentique Paper.

This particular paper is called:


Here is another shot with different coloring…I will most likely redo these pictures outside tomorrow and replace these pictures.

Notice how I put wire on my ornaments?  I love the way it looks!

I also made those cute flowers by using the shabby rolled technique with paper.  I was soo excited with the way they turned out!

Be sure to head on over to the Sweet Stamps.com blog and see what our other fabulous designers have come up with.
