Season's Greetings! Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge

Whew!  Down to the wire on this one!  I am barely getting this one in before the deadline.  It's 10:27 and I have 33 minutes until this challenge expires.  That's alright...nothing like a little pressure to get you moving, right?

I missed the challenge last week over at Skipping Stones, because of Thanksgiving, but I got a card done for this weeks sketch.  Here is the sketch...


And here is my card...


How cool are these shaped cards?  I love it.  It's like immediate pizazz!  They really are fun to make;  once you start, you won't stop. 

For this one I used Nestabilities Labels 10 for the card base and the mat.  The patterned paper is from Nordic Holiday (Basic Grey).  The tree stamp is one of my PSX treasures - still love and miss them.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.  I used some White Liquid Applique and loose glitter on the tree for the snow.  I will have to tell you some time about my love for Liquid Applique.  It's fun stuff!

I should probably go to bed soon, but there are so many more challenges I want to get done.  Sleep can wait!

Happy Stamping,

Michelle
