Yuletide Blessings

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #93 – sketch.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #93

And here is my take:

Yuletide Blessings - by karen @ carefree creations

If you can’t see it, then let me first say that I rotated the sketch 180° (or flipped it upside down).

I guess I have Christmas on the brain…when trying to decide what to use as the two arrow-things in the sketch I saw pine branches and couldn’t move away from that.

I really wanted a plaid pattern at the top, but I’m using what I have! The paper has “cranberry crisp” listed as a color. I have the stitched ribbon that came out with that color, but oh boy it does not match very well. Instead I dug into my red ribbon box and found some dark red twine. I thought the twine added to the rustic feel of the card (or um makes the card feel rustic….something like that anyway).
