H2H Challenge - Sketch Challenge!

This week over at H2H we have a sketch challenge. Refer to sketch below:

I was delighted to see that is was very similar to a card I had already been working on as my Christmas card for this year. You see, I recently a GORGEOUS card from my uber talented friend Karen Pederson. (You have to take a moment to visit her blog to see her fantastic work! Just visit her link on the sidebar of my blog.) I had already decided I was going to shamelessly 'CASE' her beautiful card as my Christmas card for this year...and here is what I have working so far...

What is hard to make out on this picture is I have used one of Close to my Heart's Dimensional Element - Flurry snowflake and covered it with Liquid Applique, heat set it and then lightly distressed it with bamboo ink. The smaller snowflake is inked with Barn Red ink and then lightly painted with our really cool Pearl Paint to give it it's shimmery look. I think I am going to make some tweeks and adjustments to this card...before I reproduce it about 100 times! (No kidding my Christmas card list is CRAZY!!) So I will post the final outcome when I finally finish it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous, Kelly! I'm so glad my card inspired you. Yours is MUCH prettier though!
