Perfect Sentiments Challenge 04: Seasons Greetings With A Sketch

Hello there fellow scrappers & paper crafters. It's time again for another awesome challenge from The Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog.

The final challenge for October is to create a Seasons Greetings card by following this sketch...

 Here is my take on this weeks challenge....

This was a really fun card to design & create. I have to be honest and tell you that I don't typically create from sketches but this was a great one for me to "jump in and get my feet wet" in the sketch world : )

I used some really sweet holiday wire edged holiday ribbon and attached 3 jingle bells to the bow. Now these jingles bells came from my mom in a box of Christmas stuff that she had years before I was even they are vintage and I am really glad I was able to use something she gave me in a scrappy project : )

Some Noel chipboard letters on a distressed strip of holiday patterned paper.

I used a variety of stickers/tags/bling & embellis that I had in my stash. I used the brown ribbon to mimic hearth. I really like the vintage holiday vibe from this card.
Here's a photo of the inside. I distressed the edges of the cardstock & inked them up. Added a glittered chipboard snowflake in the corner and voila!

Sort of hard to tell in this shot but I used a pop up dot to raise the snowflake off the cardstock for a more defined layered look.

We have another awesome sponsor for this weeks challenge...Patti over at Patties Creations Digitial Stamps is giving away one free digi to the lucky winner of this weeks challenge. Be sure to visit her Etsy store and tell her that the Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog sent you : )
