It's time for my final project as the December Guest Designer for Mark's Finest Papers Sketch with a Twist Challenge. My month with them has gone quickly and I've enjoyed using their beautiful stamps. I'm a bit late posting this today as our internet went out last night. I am really pleased with our internet company though because they had a service tech out here after work tonight and he fixed the line & replaced the modem. Most companies don't have "after work hours" techs still working let alone give you same day service. Anyway....back to the important stuff -- I'll try to keep it short & sweet to get this posted ASAP.
Here is this week's sketch....
This week's twist is to make a Christmas card.
My version includes some die cutting on the background mat and sentiment panel. I hand cut the music sheet & one spray of pine cones & evergreens. The spray was accented with some stickles. There are a few pearls scattered about and two ribbons layered together. The words on the sentiment panel were traced with a glitter pen for a little added sparkle.
I did a little interior decorating. I kept it fairly simple and just layered a few die cuts.
