Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge

Oh, Monday.  Why did  you have to come so soon?  The weekend was going so well.  That's OK though.  Just 5 more days until Christmas break!

In the meantime, here is another sketch challenge from Skipping Stones.    Here is this weeks sketch...


And here is my card...


ETA:  As Siobhan suggested, I am also entering this for Use It Tuesday.  This is a weekly challenge I NEED!  I have so much stuff in my stash that I have been hoarding...I mean saving, lol!

Pulled out two relics for this one.  The tree stamp is from an old Stampin' Up! set.  Lovely as a Tree, I think?  The sheet music is a large background stamp from Hero Arts.   I have had both of these stamps in my collection for a very long time!   We're talking at least 10+ years.  The tree and the edges of the paper are embossed with some white embossing powder (Tsukineko).  Stamped the music with Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Tim Holtz). 

It has been cold and rainy around here all day, so I am off now to start a big ol' pot of chili.  Yum!  Love, love, love me some chili!

Thanks for stopping by,

Michelle
