It's Week 8 over at Jingle Belles Rock, and I am soooo happeeeeeeeeeeeee, because this week is a SKETCH! Aaaaand, for those who want to have a chance to win stuff (not me, I'm trying to get rid of stuff), you get a double chance, because this week the Belles are teaming up with Sketchy Thursdays for the sketch, and you can enter your card in both places! Sweet!
Here is our sketch:
As soon as I set eyes on that, I knew instantly what I would do, and I done did it when I got home tonight:
I have so. much. Figgy Pudding papers, in both the 6x6 and 12x12 sizes, that I knew it must be used. This is all Figgy Pudding, well, except for the irreverent sentiment which arrived in my mailbox JUST TODAY from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. It only presented a little bit of a challenge because of its size, but I persevered and slipped a few things left so it would all fit. AND, since the Belles let us be inspired by the sketch (to a point, I'm sure) I took a few liberties. The sentiment is bigger, plus I added a little something-something on the left to balance out all that stuff on the right and fill in the big empty on the white die-cut.
Want a closer look? Here you go:
That button is from an old margarine tub that holds some miscellaneous buttons I have in my Miscellaneous Embellies drawer, and I think it is a perfect match! Maybe if I'd taken a decent photo of the card you could tell, too. ;/
So there you have it - my entry for JBR 08. If you haven't already joined us, it's not too late! We play every week through November!
Thanks for stopping by!
