Sketch Saturday #391 (Updated)

...been a while since I've been able to play a Sketch Saturday!  Here's my fabulous* card for #391:

*The card is fabuolous, right? This card was fabulous before it was even made-- the image is freaking awesome... details below.

Here's the sketch:

Oooh, and this challenge  is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp... now, that is fabulous.

Supplies and notes:
  • The image is a leftover scrap from a snowman made from that my awesome friend/coworker made for me.  She is so smart.  She knows I use everything for crafting, and she brought me the scraps!  What a doll. The book she used was a handyman book from the 1950s... I got some awesome clippings from them!!! (Check my next post...)
(Here's the snowman my buddy made for me out of the old book. Isn't it so cute?  She also made these trees with a sixth-grade class. This one was her prototype... but look how awesome? ! She snuck in today and added the star!)
  • Also have to say,  it was unplanned how PERFECT the star on top of the tree would go with the sketch. Magic happens!!!
  • Scrap green from a DCWV stack 
  • The star was the negative space from a Pink Paislee sticker page.   I coated the star with Aged Gold frantage
  • The gold rubbing was from a generic sheet
  • The red glitter is Stickles Xmas Red
  • Busted out the old typewriter for the sentiment and edged the words and the image with Color Box chalk in Blackbird 
This card will go to my BFF from childhood... she has a new-ish sweetheart, and they don't have kids,  so this is how I picture childless people decorating their tree! The image is just missing martinis!  Cheers!


  1. You crack me up, and yes, this is how I envision childless people decorating a tree too! Ha! My +4 children version is QUITE DIFFERENT!!! Sheesh, anyway, lovely make! Yes it is just fantastic! ;0 <3

  2. Great use of the Sketch Saturday layout this week. Works so well with this vintage design. Thanks for playing this week. Good Luck.
