Cathleen's sketch


I made this card for the Ladies, Ink sketch challenge using Cathleen’s sketch. A link to her blog is on my sidebar.

I really wanted an antique-y feel to my this card and didn’t want the traditional green and red, but wanted green and red. So, I used Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss and Bravo Burgundy and really like this combo. I don’t use Mellow Moss very often and I’m not sure why because every time I use it, I love the look of it.

I used SU’s Tree Trimming and Christmas Greetings, both which I got for my birthday.

I must be SAJ challenged as I had a heck of a time lining up the strings and ornaments! OY! Of course, the fact that I don’t actually own a SAJ and was using a T ruler and acetate may have something to do with my issues. Then again, maybe not!

I cb’d my bravo burgundy with the Christmas Ornaments folder, rounded my corners and ta da!

One more Christmas card done and no clue how many more I need to make!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Lovely Michelle....I find some SAJs are slightly out...in that the image sheet can and will tuck under the SEA main bit ....if you are not really careful....this makes the end product slightly out too.

So Andrew is going for 3 from 3 eh? ROFL!
