CSS Alumni Blog Hop 7 - A Sketch Challenge

It's time for another CSS Alumni Blog Hop. You should have come from the Melissa's beaituful blog. If not, you can start the hop over by going to this link at StampTV. Otherwise please read on and feel free to leave a comment to let me know what you think.

This time we were given a sketch to use for our projects.


I made two cards using the sketch. My first card is a Christmas card using an image from a set illustrated by Nina Brackett called Lord of The Season. I paper pieced the tree with scraps from Basic Grey Nook and Pantry.


For my second card I used another set illustrated by Nina Brackett called Grand Damask. I also used one of my favorite color combinations. I love red and aqua together.



Now head over to Miesje's blog for some more eye candy. Word has it that she made something with some new rubber.

Melissa- You did a beautiful job on both. It's fabulous how you used the same sketch, yet each card looks so totally different from the other.
