Papilio's Lida Getting Ready to Decorate the Christmas Tree at Friday Sketchers #125
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday, wherever you may be!! Gosh, time is flying by it seems and soon we will be in the throes of the holidays everywhere!! So I guess we just need to take a deep breath and get ready for the busy season.
This week I am hosting over at Friday Sketchers #125 and I would love for you to come over and join in with us this week to use my humble sketch so that you would be eligible for a wonderful prize. We are offering a splendid prize which is provided by Carole of Stardust Gems and Ribbon who is sponsoring my week. Carole, thank you a million times over for your generosity.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, the red matting is PTI, the other matting and the DP is all from the I Believe Collection by My Mind's Eye. All major panels were machine stitched. All of the red matting peeking out was covered with Christmas Red Stickles. I used Papilio's little darling Lida's Ornaments which was designed by the magnificently talented Malin T. Petterson. She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, Spica, and a touch of Stickles. For the horizontal I used the 1 1/2" Red Grosgrain, 7/8" Red Organza , with a bow made using the amazing Bow-Easy Tool, which are available at Really Reasonable Ribbon. This time for embellishments, I was really taken by that tiny red cardinal so I used red feathers sprinkled with Christmas Red Stickles. I finally added a little Christmas tree charm, since Lida is getting ready to decorate it, and a few red rhinestones to soften the corners. In retrospect I also added a wee bunch of antique white berries which I found at a local antique store...smile
For the horizontal on the first panel I used the same red organza ribbon and bow and topped them with a touch of red feathers and Stickles. For the jotting panel I added a couple of magical snowflakes and a jotting spot.
I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using my sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
