Sweet Sunday Deck the Halls

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC197.

I created card #31 for Project Christmas 2013 using the new Cheerful Christmas Greetings stamp set from My Favorite Things, which will be available in the MFT Boutique on November 12th at 10pm EST.

I started with a Primitive Cream card base then added a layer of the new Chocolate Brown card stock. It's a delish new colour, not quite as intense as Hot Fudge. The patterned paper in the background is from the Echo Park Very Merry Christmas collection.

I used the Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics to cut out the Primitive Cream circle and stamped the sentiment using Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink. I used the Scallop Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the Wild Cherry scallop and added a half circle of corrugated cardboard for texture. I used the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Wild Cherry background circle.

For the vertical element I chose a strip of Jellybean Green and used the new Striped Backgrounds, stamped with Jellybean Green Premium Dye Ink, for the diagonal lines. I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Wild Cherry flag and stitched it in place.

On the inside I added another sentiment from Cheerful Christmas Greetings.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
