Cardabilities Sketch #15

Are you ready for the next Cardabilities sketch? Here we go with Sketch #15:

I loved the simplicity of this sketch, and I tried to stay true to the few elements here. I didn't add a bunch of extra layers or embellishments; it's a nice CAS (clean and simple) Christmas card.

I stamped one of the ornament stamps from Just Rite and colored it with Copic markers before cutting it out. I wanted the ornament to really pop out against the background paper, so I added the pink colors to the ornament. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms (now retired), and I used the Wisped Frames technique around it. The corners just screamed out for a little extra decoration, so I added some punched corner pieces and pearls to complete this card.

Check out what the other DT gals have created over on the Cardabilities blog. You will love all the fabulous eye candy, trust me. Maybe you will see something to inspire you to create your own card using this sketch. Add the link to your creation on the Cardabilities blog so we can all check it out. :-)
