Skipping Stones Designs sketch challenge

Merriest Christmas Wishes

supplies: white and dark aqua cardstock, Hero Arts CG377 Merriest Christmas Wishes, Our Daily Bread Designs "Peace & Joy" (snowflake), Brilliance Peacock tri-color ink, tiny buttons, Jillibean Soup twine

I found the most darling sketch this morning at the Skipping Stones Designs blog!


You must go see what the design team did with it - so many wonderful adaptations!  I thought I was done making cards until after Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't resist this one.  And I know I'll use it many more times in the future; I've already saved it in my sketch file.  It's one by Chan Vuong.  Thanks, Chan!
