I just love to make cards. It feels like I'm sending a paper hug with every card I make:)

Sweet Stop Sketch #225
Here is the sketch for this week's challenge at the Sweet Stop:
The large oval shape made me immediately think of Christmas decorations, so that was the route I took with this sketch, though on second thoughts, this layout would suit almost any occasion - think of flowers, birthdays, silhouettes etc. However, I was committed to using my new stamp set, Vintage Ornaments which has four beautiful ornaments plus lovely sentiments. I heat embossed my ornament and in real life it has a lovely sparkle to it. I dry embossed the oval shape with a snowflake folder, then mounted the image on designer papers and glitter trims. Not traditional Christmas colours, perhaps, but I look forward to using those ornaments again with a more classic Christmas theme.
