Holiday Wishes - Tuesday Morning Sketches #528

Hello, everybody!  Today I'm excited to announce that I've joined the Design Team at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Yay!  I enjoy sketches and find them so inspiring - I hope you do too and will hop over and join our challenge!

Tuesday Morning Sketches

Tuesday Morning Sketches has a sketch for you each Tuesday, and I will be providing inspiration bi-weekly, sharing the Design Team position with one of my favourite crafty friends... you'll have to check back next week at Tuesday Morning Sketches to find out who she is!

I liked this week's sketch as soon as I saw it!  It's a fun one and can be used for a variety of occasions, but I knew right away I wanted to make a festive holiday poinsettia card!

I die-cut the poinsettia and leaves (Poppystamps Small Blooming Poinsettia) in red, green, and gold foil posterboard.  The patterned paper scrap is from K and Company, and I embossed the beige panel with Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball.  The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts, stamped with Your Next Stamp Holly Berry Red, and I finished off my card with a number of red, green, and gold sequins.  

Here's this week's sketch, designed by Debbie - Sketch 528:

I would also like to support the following challenges: Allsorts Make Your Own Flowers 1/3; Beccy's Place A Month of Holiday Cards (jumping ahead to F for Festive Foliage) UE; Crafts Galore Encore November AG 2/3; Crafty Friends AG 2/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Letter H (holiday wishes) UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Dragonfly Dreams Christmas/Winter; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 3/3;Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 5/5; The 12 Months of Christmas Link-up AG Christmas Optional Red and Green 4/10; The Outlawz Festive Friday Christmas UE; Word Art Wednesday 410-411 AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk2 5/5; Your Scrapbook Place AG 2/3

Ooooh, what a pretty card! Great idea to cut the poinsettia from mirror card KT, it's gorgeous. I also like the background you made, the split between the patterned paper and plain card stock looks great and I love the addition of the embossing to bring it all together. Lovely!

Barbara Godden said...

Wow did I miss this? Congratulations on your DT spot I love Tuesday Morning sketches, Your card is gorgeous I probably didn't notice it because it didn't have a Kitty on it lol. I usually check on Monday on facebook. That sketch is perfect for a poinsettia and I might just have to try it, but not for the challenge I quite often use past TMS for my cards.

Its very nice card!

Susan Renshaw said...

Love the poinsettia!

Welcome to the team! And what an amazing card to start with. This is beautiful - I never knew there was such a thing as foiled poster board. It die cuts and embosses with amazing detail.
