Tuesday Morning Sketches - TMS 535 - Anything Goes

Hello, everybody!  Happy Holidays!  We have a fun challenge for you at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  There's no sketch this time... it's our Annual Anything Goes Challenge and it will run until January 5, 2020, so you have plenty of time to join in!  My teammates have made all kinds of fun projects, so please head over and check them out!

I made an easel card using Stephanie Barnard Sizzix Framelits Stand-ups die set!  I recently won a prize from Drawn by Krista and I chose Meet Me Under the Mistletoe Colour Clipart set (thank you!). I adore this sweet gingerbread couple - they make me smile!  The word art, heart candy, and holly are all from the same set, which I printed and fussy-cut.

I die-cut a circle from white glitter cardstock (a gift from Debi, thank you!).  The plaid papers were a freebie a few years ago from Linda's Digi Creations Faceboook Page (thank you!).

I added a few puffy stickers from Dollarama (gingerbread house and candy canes) and some tiny snowflake sequins.  The photo below shows the card when closed, and it fits easily into an A2 envelope for mailing.

I hope you'll be inspired to join our Annual Anything Goes Challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

What a shame those are stickers, KT! CUTEST little gingerbread people EVER! I love them! Did you scan them before using them? Darling. And a beautiful easel card shape! Love it! So happy I got to see your creation at Jan’s Digi Stamp Challenges . Thanks for the inspiration, and I hope to see more of your designs soon.
