2 Sketches 4 You - #37 - The Sweetest Season

Good Morning Everyone,

Today brings another awesome sketch from the lovely ladies at 2 Sketches 4 you - which this week is being sponsored by Just Rite Stamps. This is sketch #37 from Kazan and I can't even tell you how much I love this sketch! The first time I saw it - I was like "Wow"! what a cool sketch - and then I was like.... hmmmmm.... what am I going to do??? ack! I actually made a different card with a different circle element - but I didn't end up liking it - so I kept that aside for later. I created this mini snow globe-y card instead. I used the Just Rite Stamps: Old Fashioned Christmas Borders and Centers for the sweet image of the snowmen feeding the birds and the sentiment is from the Something Sweet Borders and Centers. The snowglobe is a clear favor circle/bubble fromTaylored Expressions and I stamped the snowmen, colored them with copics and then cut them out and placed them and adhered them to the inside circle of the favor circle. Then I adhered the papers to the card and cut out a circle for the favor to pop out of . Then I put the top of the circle on and adhered it with some tombow and then covered it with the papers with the circle part that was cut out, easily slipping over the clear globe.

The sentiment was stamped and then cut out with spellbinders and then after card was "done", I pleated the ribbon around the snowglobe (using the sticky tape and some tombow). and then of course - I had to add some liquid pearls :) lol! I am seriously loving these My Mind's Eye papers - they are so fun and bright and merry!!!

I had SO much fun making this card and I loved playing with my Just Rite stamps with Kazan's awesome sketch. I hope you have a chance to join us this week - there are some yummy goodies involved!!! For more details and to check out the amazing creations from the design team, head on over to 2 Sketches 4 You.

Happy Monday Everyone!!
Thanks for stopping by to visit today!
Stay warm and big hugs!!
Sankari :)

Dang, girl -- I'm just finding out about this sketch this week, so I'm sorry I didn't play along. Your card is FABULOUS!! I had thought to do a snowglobe effect with these sweet snowmen, too, with the favor bubble -- your version is beyond cute, I never could have lived up to it! Love the ribbon around the bubble!
