Tuesday Morning Sketches

Welcome to a day full of fun blog post - I have four today so please scroll up and down to see all the fun projects I am sharing today.

This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches, we have  fun sketch and a new sponsor Stretch n Bubbles is joining us as our wonderful sponsor.

WOW, this is definitely going to be a fun challenge sketch this week.

Let me tell you, I looked at this one and knew immediately what I had to do ....
First I had to go looking in all my baskets that hold my Stampin Up stamps 
until I found the one I knew I wanted to use. How sad is this that I had to hunt for my stamps, it has 
been ages since I gave a thought to my old faithful Stampin Up stamps and probably longer since this 
one has seen any ink on it!!

First sorry for the glare, no matter how I angled the card or the camera it was constantly there
but that is all due to the Acetate that I used for the cover of my card!
So once I found my stamp set I wanted Snow Swirled then I had to hunt down my Encore Metallic Silver ink pad - yes it was still good to go after sitting in a drawer for icons. I cut a piece of Acetate 4 .25 x 5.25
and used two of the different snowflake stamps on it, I then stamped the tree onto True Black card stock 
and then a few crystal gems for accent. Oh and my gorgeous ribbon (that I won from Really Reasonable Ribbons last week) Love it!! So rich and plain gorgeous!  There you have my card, easy as pie ( just had to let the ink dry on the acetate) and it was finished.

Ok it's your turn, come share with us how you see this sketch as a card of your own!! 

Be sure to take a minute to swing over to the design team

Absolutely stunning! The black and silver is gorgeous and I can only imagine what it looks like in real life. Being a clear card, I'm sure it's breathtaking.
