TMS #229

Happy Tuesday! Time for another challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Melissa has another fun sketch for you to play with this week, and we have another awesome sponsor - Sweet and Sassy Stamps!!

For this weeks card I used Sweet and Sassy's set "Born this Day".  I love this set, not only does it have this adorable manger image, it has lots of Christmas greetings and sentiments! I used Distress markers and a water brush to create a soft, watercolor look.  Die cut the star from gold foil paper and popped it up with a foam square.  Embossed the blue panel, die cut the bottom edge of the light craft panel. The gold embossed craft paper is from DCWV.  The greeting was stamped on a banner die cut then popped up by scoring and folding each end of the banner.  Now to get this card in the mail! Yes, I'm late again this year!!

I hope you take the time to play along this week, we look forward to seeing what you create! (and you could win a great prize from Sweet and Sassy Stamps!)

Thanks for stopping by.  For more wonderful inspiration, be sure to stop by the other design team member's blogs.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas!!
