Just Us Girls Challenge #10 - Sketch Time

*** If you are looking for my March of the Snowmen post please CLICK HERE ***

It's sketch time with Just Us Girls and I am this week's hostess. I hope you like the sketch. I created TWO projects with it - they are similar but feature different colors. First off - here's the sketch. Remember you can flip the sketch  - be inspired!



Here's what I came up with:




I used stamps from both Gina K (the sentiment) and PaperTrey (to make the ornaments). I used Faux Ribbon to make one of the "ornaments" and then I used the tree from the Holiday 2009 Tags - both from PTI. I added a small snippet of gold paper (from Gina K and it is my most favorite gold paper ever!) to make the ornament "tops" and a bit of gold cord to make the "hangers." All of the gold was stamped with Versamark and embossed with fine gold embossing powder.  My ribbon is a bit of gold and ivory braid and my "bow" was replaced by a gold tree from a length of ribbon that I have yet to use. It fit perfectly in this layout. Gold balls from Gina K provide the final embellishments in the two opposite corners. The BG is Cranberry Tart paper (Gina K) and was embossed with swiss dots CB. Here you can see the details of the embossed ornaments and sentiment.

For my second card I used the same concept only worked with PTI's Enchanted Evening (a really rich blue) and silver:


Sentiment is from Gina K's A Very Merry Christmas - the "flourish" comes from Gina K's Vintage Borders set;  the ornaments were made using PTI's Faux Ribbon and Guide Lines. I stamped with silver ink then embossed with silver powder. BG is embossed using Textile folder. A bit of white organdy ribbon topped with silver ribbon and a few glitter dots to finish off.

I hope you will play along with Just Us Girls this week. Be sure to provide us with a direct link to your card on the Mr. Linky on our JUGS blog.

Also - please stop by and leave some love for my fellow DT girls - they have some amazing inspiration for you as well.
