Freshly Made Sketches 261

Sometimes I look at sketch challenges and draw a complete blank and sometimes I can't get to my desk fast enough to make the card that immediately popped into my head. Cindy's sketch for Freshly Made Sketches 261 is one of those that quickly translated into a card for me. It might have something to do with the Poppystamps Snowflake Ribbon die that I picked up at a sort of local store weeks ago. Cindy has the narrow band going behind her panels and I pulled it to the front to showcase the ribbon die.

The Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink on a white panel and heat embossed. Tumbled Glass Distress Ink is blending over the panel making the sentiment pop. A second rectangle panel is cut from black cardstock and slightly offset from the inked panel before being adhered to the card base. The sequin and pearl add a finishing touch to the snowflake.

I think it is time for a clean up and reorganization of my office because sequins were the latest item to go missing. They were finally found behind my Expedit bookcase where the entire case had slid out the back of a cubby!?
