I have been so busy lately and my crafting has suffered. I have not taught classes or created much of anything. The kids are off this week for Spring Break and the oldest one has stitches in his foot (Grandma went out of town, leaving the kids in Grandpa's care). So we are stuck in the house. Yippee! Nothing left to do but craft!
So I started looking for a challenge to participate in and found this sketch on Always Playing with Paper. They have a Merry Monday Challenge that I have been itching to try and so yesterday, I set up my table in the living room and got comfortable. Here is the sketch for this challenge:
And here is my card:
For this challenge you must take the sketch and make a Christmas card. I am learning to not be so rigid and trying to get comfortable with following the sketch in spirit and not literally. LOL
All of the supplies are from Close to My Heart. The paper is our recently retired Pear & Partridge. I loved that paper! The stamp sets used are CTMH's Holiday Cheer (B1381), Merry & Bright (C1510), and the Pear & Partridge Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set (C1514).
Colors used are Cocoa, Olive, Honey, and Cashmere. I used the Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the shapes.
Oh and before I forget, here is the inside of my card:
