FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #8

Wow! I didn’t realize how tight I am on time! This card is almost to late to enter the Freshly Made Sketches #8 challenge….

OK then, I’ll get right to it. Here is my card:

FMS8

and this is the sketch:

I really do love this card! It is a 6x6” square and uses MME Lost & Found Christmas paper, plus my fav Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps. This set is called Gingerbread Wreath and has the cutest little gingerbread men in two sizes plus the candy canes and little gift boxes and the foliage.  The details in these stamps is just amazing.

My sewing machine got in on the action today with a little fun stitching around the wreath. A little more practice and I think I’ll have that going perfectly.

I also used RST’s Merry Christmas Peg stamp on the sentiment tag at the bottom.  A Spellbinders die cut on some MME paper makes up the tag along with a little glam.
