Christmas in October

It’s been a little while since I’ve entered a sketch challenge, so I feel it’s time for a new!

This sketch comes from Seize the Sketch, and is linked to their blog for this week’s challenge.

Here is my rendition:

One of the great things about sketch challenges is the sketch leaves great room for interpretation.  This being case in point, I rotated the sketch to better enhance the elements I chose to use.

Close To My Heart is releasing a Holidays From The Heart Gift Guide that will be available to purchase from starting October 15 and this BRAND NEW fantastic stamp set, Charming Chevron, is included in that guide. As are the sparkles which coordinate perfectly with the stamp set!  The paper packet, Sparkle and Shine, is also going to be released in the new gift guide. I added a subtle background by using a Sizzix® dry embossing folder, and the sentiment is cut using the Cricut® Artbooking Cartridge in Ruby Cardstock.

The Holiday Gift Guide is full of Christmas cheer (Including this new Christmas themed paper packet, multiple stamp sets, a gift bag kit, a new Workshop on the Go, etc)  and there are also stamp sets for everyday use! Did I mention 2 new sets of Washi Tape bundles?!?! (if you remember from a previous post Washi Tape is kinda my obsession!!)
