I chose more traditional colors for this card. Cranberry cordial and gold paper on a smooth white cardstock. The Tree and packages are from Birdie Brown's "Santa's Elves" stamp set and cut with coordinating dies. The top design comes from Blueprints 18 (love my blueprints). The images were colored with copics.

I love this sketch. I found a fall leaves embossing folder among my many. I have finally gathered them all together in one place and was surprised to see how many I actually own! The photo reminded me of changing leaves in fall and so I went with shades of orange for my layers. My stamps are from a previous set called "falling for you". I stamped them and then covered them with "Perfect Pearls" in a gold color to add to the fall theme.

I loved seeing the designers take on this sketch. Even though I have the stars die-namics, I needed a birthday card. I stamped the balloon strings background in gold and cut out the balloons with the stax. I ran them all through an embossing folder and added some shimmer with my Stella. Happy Birthday from PI and a Washi die-namics finished the card.

When my new stamps arrived, I knew the vertical text would look good on this card. I found the background paper from an old SEI pack. The others are from my stash. I made the butterflies using Jennifer McGuire's faux metal technique using Perfect Pearls. They were cut with die cuts that I have had for years and I am not sure from which company. I am so pleased with the way it turned out.

This is the first time I have been able to enter the TE challenge. I especially love my TE Christmas stamps and die cuts. When I first saw the sketch, I thought of a wreath. Of course, since we have been involved in remodeling, I can't find my wreath stamps and dies, so I made this card instead. We relocated to FL this year, so I want my Christmas Cards to be very special for our family since we can't spend the holidays with them. I think this one really fits the "special" card, don't you?

I have really had a hard time getting myself together to finish my cards on time. Hopefully, now that my craft area is just about finished and my storage is organized, I will be able to concentrate on the creative side. I love the tall and skinny cards. The simplicity of this sketch lent itself to a sophisticated Christmas card. I hope the recipient likes it.
