"Happy Holidays" and Winter in the Woods using Unscripted Sketches #175

It's Saturday again and time to share another Christmas card! I've been doubling up of the challenges and today's card uses both Unscripted Sketches Sketch #175 and also the "Wooden it be Nice" challenge from Shopping Our Stash Challenge #67

This card has a fun wintery feel with the colors of the holiday season. For the "Wooden it be Nice" challenge, I used a piece of Basic Grey woodgrain patterned paper that happened to match with the color palette of my holiday paper that is from a DCVW holiday stack. For the sketch, I used a 1/2" circle punch to punch out circles in three places that are accented with punched silver snowflakes accented with mini gems. I rubbed around the circles with red chalk ink to add a glow and popped up the whole paper. I replaced the punched pieces behind for a fun twist.

**A TIP** I used 1/8" red fun foam in place of pop-dots to pop up this large piece of patterned paper adhered with Miracle Tape.

To finish off this card, I applied a "Happy Holidays" rub-on from Cosmo Cricket accented with a few more snowflake and star punches. All of these came from one snowflake Martha Stewart "Aspen Flurry" punch all over the page - the pieces are actually the pieces punched away and leave a beautiful negative punched background...a win, win!

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!

Great News! The ABAC Challenge Blog debuted last Saturday and tomorrow my first project will be featured with the design team!!!! Please drop by tomorrow and check it out! CLICK HERE to go to ABAC.
