I actually own quite a few of them.
I only realized this when I was going through them to find something for the latest sketch challenge. ;)
I've been watching WMS sketch challenges for some time, always intending to participate but this is my first actual entry! And it's not even my favorite sketch!
Not my typical style and so I'm not sure if I nailed it or not. ;)
I've had those gorgeous Maya Road pins for a little while just begging to be used. Finally got them in! ;)
The snowflakes were heat embossed in silver. Then I sprinkled on a little loose powder and heated it from underneath to get it to stay put while I finished the embossing process on top. The blue panels were then inked up a bit and sewn around the edges.
The sentiment circle was created by clear embossing the stamp on white and then using 3 distress inks and a spritz of water.
The bow/flower was a serious pain. I had no idea how to do what I wanted to accomplish and ended up winging something else. I inked the silk ribbon with 2 distress inks (both sides) and then trimmed the sides to give it an antique, frayed look. The grommet stud (can't remember what the brand is) in the center is hiding the knot while glue and Scor-tape are keeping it together!
[Edited to add:] This card shared Top Mouse award with 2 other contestants! I'm so thrilled!!
