It's that time for another sketch challenge for the PPA.

PPA 269 flat

 I must say that this sketch challenge was a difficult one for me.  After creating my first card, I decided that it wasn't quite right.  But, I feel that this card does meet the challenge.  Here is the sketch.

 Joyful Season is my stamp set of choice with the ornaments from Peaceful Pines in a supporting role.  The branches of the tree are stamped in Crumb Cake forming a loose circle.  The cardinal from Joyful Season is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the second part of the cardinal is stamped in Real Red Ink.   The splatters from the same stamp set are done in Soft Sky.   

This image was then cut with a Circle Framelit and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals making sure to align the branches.

The ornaments from Peaceful Pines  are stamped in both Soft Sky & Real Red Ink.  Thankfully I was able to use the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies to cut out the ornaments.  

Finally, the sentiment from Peaceful Pines is inked with Soft Sky Ink, punched out with a circle punch and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Look closely and you can see some Gold Metallic Thread coiled behind the sentiment.
