WWC92 - Merry Wishes

I love sketch challenges and Jean's sketch, this week at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, is no exception.  I had to study the sketch for a bit to decide what I would do with it, but in the end, tipping it on its side came to my rescue.  That's the great thing about a sketch challenge.  Whether it's vertical, horizontal, or otherwise flipped, as long as the sketch is recognisable, it's legal.

I decided to have a lot of fun with cardstock and Designer Paper for my card.  As my base I've used the Heavy Whisper White.  Then I layered narrow rectangles of cardstock.  The Real Red is attached just as it is.  The Crumb Cake has been embossed using the Confetti embossing folder and then attached.  I used Dimensionals to attach the layer of Early Espresso.  Then came my layer of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper which has bits of all those previous colours in it.  Finally, I fussy cut two houses from the same Designer Series paper and attached them using Dimensionals.  My only stamping is the sentiment for which I used Real Red ink and the Christmas Magic stamp set.

This was such fun to create!  I hope you'll check out the wonderful cards created by the other Watercooler Artists here.
