Today's SCS sketch

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Whew, it's such a busy time of the year!! I had time this morning to make a card for today's Sketch Challenge. I LOVE it! Really love it!

For the card, I used my go to Christmas set, Verve's newly released Ornamental Christmas. I found out from a thread on the Verve member company forum that you can stamp the ornament designs IN the blank ornament. It was a DUH moment for me. Seems pretty basic, but for some reason it didn't click. WOW! The possibilities of this set just tripled -LOL!

I stamped and embossed the blank ornament first, then stamped the snowflake design in soft sky and lastly embossed the sentiment. When I embossed the sentiment a bit of the gold EP stuck to the soft sky, I think it looks cool -kind of a hybrid! I then lightly colored the inside with a blender pen with soft sky ink. All the DP is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding (so love that stuff!). The gold brads and the AWESOME satin edged organdy ribbon are from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.

Speaking of Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts, don't forget that Heidi is offering a SUPER free gift with any purchase for my blog readers.
