This week there is another eye catching sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary. I don't often make square cards because they cost more to send in the mail and they sometimes can be too symmetrically balanced. However, this sketch is totally visually balanced while being asymmetrical which, for me, makes it very appealing.
For my card I inked up the Heart of Christmas stamp with Riding Hood Red, Gumball Green, and Pool Party Stampin' Write Markers and stamped on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I cut the greeting out using the largest framelit from the Apothecary Accents set. On scraps of Riding Hood Red and Pool Party I stamped a couple of the images from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set with Versamark ink. I then used Heat and Stick Powder to apply the perfect coat of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. To complete the sketch I included a couple bands of ribbon and some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to "hang" the ornaments.
