A Festive Holiday

Hello, Friends!
Are you still coming down from yesterday's sugar high? Well, I've got something sweet for you today, because it's Deconstructed Sketch time!
And this week's sketch #76 is another fun one!

Circular cards are not my strong suit, so I decided to construct this sketch inside my beloved four geometric walls. :) For my card I've used this awesome Poinsettia Bouquet stamp from Taylored Expressions and paired it with a mash-up of papers from 3 different paper pads I had lying around. I actually tried mixing and matching so many different combos before I settled on this one, that I don't know where each of the papers came from. Teehee...
The image is colored in Copics and topped with a touch of Diamond Stickles. The twine is from Papertrey Ink.

I hope that you will join us for sketch 76! Be sure to visit all the Sketch Girls to see how they've used this week's sketch! Have a great day!

P.S. I also just had to share...LOOK, first one of the season!! Not only do I anxiously await the return of eggnog lattes, but the first red cup always gets me a little excited for the winter season. I love winter!!

I love your take on this sketch!

I saw the sketch last night, before checking out your creation, and my first thought was to put it on a square card (right now it is half done on my desk, in fact)!

I love your card, Kadie! I am not big on circular cards, either... not sure I will do it again. I like your idea better! =) Hooray for eggnog lattes and happy red cups! I will be on the lookout for one tomorrow when I go to Portland! Have a fantastic day!

This is just absolutely gorgeous Kadie... From the perfect Christmas image to the beautiful papers. LOVE it!!! I toyed with the idea of just having the circle on the card too cause I'm not real big on circle one's either!! Beautiful work honey! Xx
