BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #130 - SKETCH

Hello Friends! I took some time to stamp last night to make this card. I love sketches and this one was no exception...the only thing, I see once again I didn't follow it exactly with the ribbon and the pearl gems...

I am going to finish some of my Christmas shopping today. Hoping to fulfill my children's Christmas wish. Surprisingly enough - they all put only ONE thing on their wish list and it was in the $30 range - very affordable. That is a blessing! I am almost done with that shopping except for a few practical things and I need to buy something for my parents. They are hard to shop for because they always say they do not want anything -

Sooo - enough chitter chatter... here is my card and some details about it...

Stamp Set: Pine Bough by Diamonds, Canvas by SU
Cardstock: SU, Red, Brown, Vanilla
Accessories: Copics, Pointsettia, Pearl Gems, Felt stitched ribbons, Glue Dots

I hope you have a great day! Thank you for stopping by!

Stunning card. Love the pine branches. My shopping is finished. I think I have spent less money this year than any so far. I had to laugh when you said your parents don't want anything. Mine are the same way and hubby and I tell son and DIL the same thing. LOL.
