CAS Christmas Ornament

Sometimes I see a sketch I really like, and then it takes me forever to figure out what to do with it because there are so MANY possibilities.  Like the Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch that was posted almost a week ago:


Yep, love it.  I was actually pretty productive in my stamp cave today and came up with this (and a few other cards, but you won't see those till next week):


I liked how the Champagne glimmer paper reflected on the shelf under the card :)  I embossed a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then adhered it to a card base of the same color, which is something I picked up from Debra Currier (love her blog).  The card is pretty CAS I think...I added a thin torn border of Early Espresso because the Marina Mist strip just seemed to need a little something more.  The card is actually 5 1/4" across, but only because for some reason my card base was cut that way (scrap from my stash) and I didn't feel like cutting into a new piece of paper. Doubt anyone would notice if I didn't say anything about it ;)

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you're having a wonderful Thursday!

What a wonderful and fun take on the sketch. The champagne glimmer paper is a perfect touch against the cherry cobbler. Thanks you for joining us at SFF
