Cardabilities Sketch #16

It's time for another Cardabilities sketch. This was a totally FUN sketch to work with, and I really enjoyed creating this card. First, here is sketch #16:

Aren't those trees a fun feature on the sketch? You don't have to use trees - just use something tall and skinny. I liked the trees, though, so I created a winter scene for my card.

I went outside my normal colors and played with pink and purple and aqua trees. There is some Stardust stickles on each tree as well as along the snowbanks. To complete the frosty feel, I swiped some white ink along the edges of the Kraft cardstock. Brrrrrrrrr!

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. :-)

Ink: Aqua Mist (PTI), Fresh Snow (PTI), Versamark, Lavender Sachet (Palette), Toile Pink (Palette)
