Sweet Sunday Christmas

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC171.

This is card #37 for Project Christmas 2012. I can't seem to put down Seasonal Sentiments from My Favorite Things. I just adore the graphic greetings and it's so easy to whip up a fabulous card with any of the sentiments from the set.

I used the Circle 1 STAX and Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the focal point from Whip Cream, Jellybean Green and corrugated cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with the new MFT Jellybean Green it! Dye ink with fabulous coverage...what more could a girl ask for! Why, diamonds of course, so I added a circle of rhinestones around the sentiment. I finished the main panel by cutting out some Wild Cherry felt using the Double Scallop Border Die-namics and stitching it in place.

The patterned papers are from the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday collection and I used Kraft cardstock for the base. The Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics were perfect for cutting out the flag element from Wild Cherry felt.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments using MFT Wild Cherry ink. The new inks will be available on November 13th with the rest of the November release. Speaking of which, teasers start this Wednesday...woo hoo!

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 Sketch Team created.
