Traditional Tree Trimming Christmas Card using
Unscripted Sketches #145

Happy Saturday! Today I will be sharing two posts for Sketch-it-Saturday! This project is using sketch #145 which debuted last Saturday. Last weekend was pre-empted by as fantastic Steampunk Bloghop I was participating in. My apologes for the delay in blogging this creation. Great news!!! There will be an "Hippity Steampunk Easter Hoppity" on GOOD FRIDAY, April 6th. If you are interested in participating CLICK HERE to sign up ASAP.

If you are keeping track...this is Christmas Card number seven (7). Yes, this is getting easier. I hope everyone is having fun checking in to see my progress on this challenge.

This card is created with a leftover DCVW background paper from a card a few weeks back layered with a double matted vintage Christmas image. This image is from a scrapbook paper with a collage of several vintage Christmas images. The mats are using two contrasting toned fancy gold stationary papers. The ribbon at the top is created with a crumpled and chalked strip of green striped patterned paper, folded to create pleats and layered over with a strip of gold paper. Looks like ribbon, right. I finished this off with some shimmery snowflakes cut from a section of mini snowflake garland. A festive and traditional holiday card indeed!
What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun...and post your creation on their page for all the world to see!

I invite you to come and play along at Unscripted Sketches. Your creation can be chosen in each week's "Top 3" and featured on the Unscripted Sketches web page the following week! Stay tuned for Sketch-it Saturday's Sketch #146 later today!!!
