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.
Check out the other Sugar Babies to see what they have for you, and then upload your project to share with us - we love to see what you create!
