Stampsmith Challenge

I have so many beautiful stamps form the Stampsmith, yet I never find time to use them or any others for that matter. Well, I am still on vacation this week, and saw the challenge on their blog. A sketch was given and you have to foll

ow that and use at least one Stampsmith stamp. I went with a Christmas theme and stamped in Archival black on glossy for my image. Used a few designer papers, mostly glittery ones. I added some ribbon to the one strip to break it up a bit and cut one of my new doily die-cuts from Cheery Lynn designs. I am loving their dies and so glad I stumbled upon them. This was a fun challenge for me as I never seem to use sketches anymore.

I think the ribbon adds a nice touch. :)

I am delighted you found the time to join us at TSC. You created a beautiful Christmas card, the colours are so fresh and great use of the sketch.
It would be lovely if you made a date to join us twice a month - a new challenge date will be announced on the 1st and 15th of every month.
Good Luck with the Prize Draw and thanks for sharing your art with us.
