Our Creative Corner - Sketch Challenge

WOW what a week… I want to thank all those again that stopped by to support Stamps and Smiles and played along with us during our Blog Hop! We all had a blast and am still laughing over the songs that were sung on some of the posts!! For those that emailed me, I will catch up on those a little later today!

Today’s card is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our October host, Lori Rider, has challenged the OCC to a sketch challenge. Stamps and Smiles will be sponsoring this week's challenge - one lucky winner will win a $25 gift certificate to store.

For my design, I used some NEW paper by SU called Christmas Cocoa Specialty. I added the the layers and did some a little stitching using my Janome sewing machine. The last layer was embossed using one of my favorite embossing folders called Winter House. To finish off the card, I added some ribbon along with some fun swirls and snowflakes. Oh and I can't forget, I also added some chunky glitter by Martha Stewart.

My Christmas Blog is now live, please stop by for a chance to win this card or many other cards that I will be giving away for my Christmas Card Giveaway. The winners for the card giveaway will receive a homemade card from me along with a goodie bag.

Please stop by the OCC to see the other samples by the amazing OCC designers. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Smiles,
