This is definitely a day to be Thankful! Thanksgiving with family, friends, a feast and a Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  And, all of you my faithful Blog Readers!

2014_PPA229 sketch


Seeing all of the circles on the sketch the first time was definitely intimidating.  I didn't know where to start.  Then I decided to use velluum for the circles and the rest just flowed.

I love the stamp set White Christmas and felt that it would work well with my circles.  Stamping images from White Cristmas directly on the dsp from the All Is Calm dsp pack made it seem as though that was all one layer.

The banner from the sketch was extended on my card in order to accommodate my sentiment and the car carrying the tree.  A little red bird in the tree complements the red car.  And, the green banner hanging between the trees does the same for the tree on the car.

A few snowflakes from Frosted Sequins placed on the velluum circles completes my card.

I struggled trying to get a good picture of my card.  Photographing "blue tones" late in the day is difficult for me.  Hopefully you can still get a good idea of what my card looks like.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Thanksgiving!
