It's a Farmhouse Christmas!

Hello everyone! Today I have a card for you made using a challenge sketch. I just love sketches! They are a great starting point in the creative process. Here is my card:

And here is the sketch:

Isn't this a great sketch? I love the tilted panel and this lends itself to a clean and simple card.

I used the new stamp set, "Farmhouse Christmas". It is in the upcoming Holiday Catalog. I just absolutely love it! It has some fun images that take me back to my small town where I grew up. I used the "Merry Christmas" stamp. I stamped it twice. Once in Garden Green (okay, I didn't look close enough and used Garden Green when the color in this DSP is actually Mossy Meadow. Oops! I still think it works.) and once in Cherry Cobbler. I cut out the green sentiment with the Stitched Shapes dies and the Cherry Cobbler one with the dies that coordinate with the "Farmhouse Christmas" stamp set, "Farmhouse Framelits Dies". I then mounted the green circle onto a Cherry Cobbler scallop circle cut from the Layering Circle dies and adhered that to the card with dimensionals. I then added the "Merry Christmas" banner to the circle with dimensionals.
A little dry embossing and twine that coordinates and my card is complete.

Here is my color combination that I used:

I did add a sentiment from the stamp set and some stamped trim to decorate the inside of my card. 

I hope you were inspired today to create something of your own. Don't forget! You only have a few days left to get the Blended Seasons bundle and take advantage of Bonus Days. Click on the links above and to the left for more info.
