Seize the sketch card

Hi all!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Ours was busy--worship, hiking, time with friends--but it's what makes my heart full. Today I'm sharing a card I made based on a great sketch from the Seize the Sketch site. Here's my card and the sketch:

The first thing I did was rotate the sketch. For some reason, I pictured a Christmas card right away but I saw it rotated! I used a Sizzix embossing folder with Christmas words on it to emboss some My Mind's Eye paper. I then stamped a Hero Arts ornament and embossed that in silver and cut it out. I hung the ornament from some baker's twine, added a bit of bling to the ornament, and then added the sentiment that was from a wood-mounted, dollar bin stamp. I heat embossed that in silver, too, and then cut the strip to look like a banner. Easy--yet tons of texture on the card. If I make another, I might try to add some slight inking on the raised words for even more texture and depth.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
