Tuesday Morning Sketch #459


Hello everyone, and welcome to another Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge. This week we're playing with sketch #459 designed by our own Melissa. I immediately envisioned a Christmas card when I saw this sketch, so here's what I made...


This is quite a simple card with traditional red and green colors. I used Spellbinders Poinsettia dies for the flowers and Poppy Shasta Twig dies for the greens. I added a Kaisercraft sentiment die cut along with some golden gemstones and called this one done!

And now be sure and stop by to visit my DT members' blogs for some wonderful inspiration too...





Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can find time to play along with us this week! Have a great Tuesday!

Carol

Oh what a fun design. I will have to think about this one, for sure! The red and green really pop on that crisp white background. Lovely!

A great one for the Christmas box - seems odd to be seeing Christmas when the weather is so hot

Perfect card for the sketch, the bright red and green really pop against the white backdrop. It feels a little criminal to me the moment thinking of the festive season as the UK is finally blessed with Summer - a rare occurrence lol x

Gorgeous card Carol. I like modern colors for Christmas cards but nothing beats the classic combo. The dimensional poinsettias are so lovely.
