Happy Monday friends!  A quick post today to make the deadline for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #47.    Here is the card I made today to share with you and to enter in the challenge:
and here is the great sketch my card is based on:
I think this is a sketch I will use several times in the future as I had so many ideas for it.  I used a textured cardstock base for this card (somehow when I use a lot of white space it seems "flat" to me unless it has texture of some sort to it).  The image is actually a part of DSP that I punched out with the Decorative Label punch and then punched a second piece with Baja Breeze cardstock to put behind it.  The patterned paper is from a NEW product out of the Stampin' Up! holiday mini catalog called Snow Festival Designer Series paper.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Riding Hood Red. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today - I'm sure glad that you did! Til next time - Hugs!
