Gifts of Friendship
Inspirational Sketches, which was the foundation of my card (and the 2nd part of the challenge besides the sketch was to make it a CHRISTMAS card!)as well as the site Use It! #22.
The sketch is, well, the sketch. Use It presented some fun challenges: try a new technique, new stamp and new papers never used before. Boy, I lucked out on this! As for the technique-I used a full sheet of 12x12 paper printed with gifts, cut out each gift, and made them my "diecuts" focal point on the card. I also used colored cardstock as my base instead of white or off white and I actually decorated the inside of my card (the finished sentiment says "is your friendship"). New sentiments from CTMH as my stamp and the papers, just got from Kristen over the weekend and broke them out today! They are retired from Flair.
