Jingle Belles Sketch!
Hello there! I have a Jingle Belles card for you today! Brace yourself... it's busy... and shiny...
The cards this week have to be based on this sketch:
Let me tell you, I love to work off a sketch, and I really liked this sketch- looked easy and clean. However, the more I added to the card, the tackier it got! I mean, first the tree. Then the buttons- they looked "blah" so I added coarse glitter and some twine for garland. Loved the star (of course, it's plain!), but my sentiment lacked the tacky theme, so I added some half pearls. I should have used the sentiment "Merry & Bright"!
