Time for a design challenge from My Inky Friends! For this challenge, we are featuring a square sketch, inspired by page 16 of the Annual Catalog.

I decided to use some new items from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog which goes live tomorrow!  It is chock full of fantastic goodies for all of your holiday projects!  For this challenge, I used the Dashing Deer Bundle – stamp set and coordinating thinlits – and the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper. Oh. My. Goodness.  It is sooooooo pretty!  The copper foil accents are stunning.

Colors are Sahara Sand, Gray Granite and Copper.  A close up look at a few details:

The vellum circle is cut out with one of the Stitched Shaped Framelits.  The sprig is from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits (part of the Frosted Floral Suite) cut out of Copper Foil.  For the Soft Suede strip I crumpled it up then separated the layers so it has a look of suede (difficult to see in the photo). I used the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint and the stylus end from the Take your Pick too. to put the copper details on the image at the bottom of the card.

Finished project is a 5″x5″ card.  I love the neutral tones on this.  What a fantastic Christmas greeting to send.
