Sketch Saturday - Sketch #289

Sketch Saturday is back with Simon Says Stamp! sponsoring our two week challenge for you in honor of the Christmas holidays. This time, you have the opportunity to pick any sketch from #215 until now.  I decided to use one of the sketches from before I joined the team and had fun making a decision about which one to use.  I finally settled on Sketch #239.

The wreath is another use of PTI's Rustic Wreath. You can probably see the little red seed beads I added around the wreath.  The photo doesn't pick up the Stickles.  The bottom strip is from another PTI stamp I bought called Christmas Joy.  I stamped it on patterned paper and used white embossing powder. Carolyn Draws is the illustrator of the Dear Santa stamp in the center of the wreath.  It's an unmounted red rubber stamp from Purple Onion Designs.

You'll see a variety of sketches being used from the DT this week, so be sure to stop by the blog.    We all wish you and your family a blessed holiday season.  See you back with a new sketch December 28th.
