Tuesday Morning Sketches #123

(For Creative Card Crew post, scroll down or click here.)

Good morning! It's time for another fun sketch from Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches! Our sponsor this week is Tiffany Doodles.

I have to confess that I was a bit stumped by this weeks' sketch...I kept trying to figure out what I could stamp in the 3 panels...then it hit me that I didn't have to stamp in them all.... Alrighty then, off to find a small image that would "fit"!

The image is colored and accented with glitter and Crystal Effects. I paired the image with some Making Memories DP; the holly berries are red foil, which you can't see in the photo. (Why is it so difficult to photograph shimmer and shine? You don't always see the full effect.) I added a diecut, some ribbon, and a holly embellishment to finish the card.

Image: Stampendous
Paper: SU! Vintage Cream and Pure Poppy, SU! Wild Wasabi, Making Memories DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", SU! Crystal Effects, PTI Red Satin Ribbon, Dress It Up Holly
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, SU! Top Note Die, SU! Dimensionals

I hope you will check out the rest of the DTs' take on the sketch here; better yet, why not play along? I would love to see your interpretation!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea to use one image in the middle and dp on either side!! brilliant I say!! These chicks are so sweet!! and have I mentioned how much I love holly!! :)

Adorable card, Angela! I agree with Donelda -- using the two panels of DP to surround this sweet chick is such a fun spin on the sketch. Love the sparkle and shine, too!!
