Tuesday Morning Sketches #431

I think I almost have enough Christmas cards but this fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches was fun to play with. 

I did take a bit of liberty with some embellishments...

I tried the card without the Cranberry Bliss leaves just it was just boring!  I started with a Black Licorice card stock base then added the FALALA print from our Christmas Cheer Prints.   I cut a little strip of Black Licorice and added some of our Deco Strips Black (first time I've opened the package!) and adhered across the card base.  Next I cut a layer of Black Licorice and Whip Cream then stamped the sentiment from our Holiday Celebrations stamp set with Black Licorice ink. This sentiment layer I used Foam Squares to raise it up.  I love our Sparkle Silk and splattered some of that on the card for some, yep, sparkle.  Last I die cut the spring from our Blooming Details die set from some Cranberry Bliss card stock and adhered.  Finally a red dot from our Magical Candy Drops and I love how this turned out!

I'm having trouble getting that today is December 1 in my mind!  I really need to work on some Christmas projects and will share them as I get them completed.

So now head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and check out the cool cards in this challenge and the great inspiration cards!
