Merry




Hi all!  Are you ready for another Woodware USA challenge?  This week, we're using another fabulous sketch made by Kerry:



I've been gearing up for Christmas lately, and I interpreted the sketch as an ornament, so I pulled out my Traditional Christmas Greetings set and started off with the wreath.  I colored that with my Copics and then stamped the "merry" sentiment with Cranberry Colorbox ink in a circle.  I layered that on some scraps from my Christmas stash- love using them up!  :)  For the bunched up ribbon, I ran some adhesive from the circle to the top of the card, and then kept bunching up the ribbon in a messy pleat.  It was easy to do but adds a whimsical touch.  To finish off the card I added a bow instead of a star.  I'm not sure if it wound up looking like an ornament, but I love the way this card turned out!  We'd love to see your interpretation of Kerry's sketch- link up here:


Thanks for stopping by!

Such a beautiful card! Isn't it interesting that we both wanted to wrinkle/ruffle our ribbon treatment? I think it works so well with the sketch and really puts a lot of focus right there on that "ornament". BEAUTIFUL!!!
