FFC44, CTS99, Merry Christmas


It's November folks, and if you haven't joined us at Festive Friday this year, now is definitely the time!

Here's our inspiration for our new challenge:


I made a one-layer card (easy to mail!) and focused on the wreath (Stampin' Up Wondrouse Wreath stamped in Lucky Limeade, Mossy Meadow and Red Royal) and the bench, by incorporating sponged stripes on one side. The sentiment is from Verve and drops down like the ribbon in the inspiration.

I used Michelle's sketch from this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:



This Festive Friday challenge will run until midnight on Wednesday, November 19. Hope to see you there!

Great call in picking up the slats on the bench!!! The wreath is gorgeous! I studied the photo with my gi-normous magnifying glass and I'm thinking that you stamped the wreath over the stripes ???

Ardyth, this is just so deliciously crisp and lovely ... and such a clever take on the inspiration! The piece de resistance is how you've incorporated the sentiment ... love how the tail of the y drapes down as the ribbon does!
