SKETCH 60: Patterned Paper!



It's Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Time!

The focus is on using Fall and/or Halloween colors!

There is a FABULOUS PRIZE...details below...

I tell ya, since our DT Challenge on the 6th, I have REALLY been in a Christmas mood! I have wanted to go Christmas shopping and decorate (although I have not actually done either of those things...yet!), I have made Puppy Chow, and I just want to make Christmas cards! Today's sketch card is no exception. I could not resist a Christmas theme to this card, and I could only envision it in red and green! LOL!

I started with a Fine Linen (PTI) base for my card, and I used this Yuletide paper from the Oh Joy! Crafting Kit from Cosmo Cricket. I just LOVE this pattern! It's so elegant and traditional! I wrapped some Brown Twill around the card and tied a bow (I kept the bow on its side to keep the card less crowded. The main "peace" image is the Peace & Joy Itty Bitty stamp from Unity. I used a Soft Suede (SU) marker to ink only part of the image. The main image and the dove were both die cut using PTI dies. The dove was embellished with a Silver Rhinestone collar, and a sparkly red sprig sits behind him.


The Details:
**Use the sketch provided and the focus is on PATTERNED PAPER! If you are like me, you have your current favorites, so use what you love right now!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC060
**Post a comment with a link to your card on right here on this post by Sunday, November 14, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).
