Bling on the holidays with a Delightful sketch

   The Jingle Belles challenge this week is to "bling on the holidays" with anything sparkly.  I used metallic ribbon from my scrap jar and adhesive gems.  I also wanted to combine this challenge with this Artful Delight sketch:
  The Artful Delight sketch challenge closes on August 23rd...the prize is the September monthly kit!  I have had so much fun with the July kit and I have enjoyed being the August guest designer; I can hardly wait to see what goodies will be in the September kit.  I think there may be a few August scrapbook kits left.  You may recall it contains gorgeous papers by Authentique and Glitz Design as well as Jenni Bowlin butterflies, Tim Holtz buttons, and yummy seam binding...I recommend you get one while you still can.  The August card kit is sold out.

Supplies:
paper:  BasicGrey 6x6 "Wassail"
adhesive gems:  Colorbok and Prima "Say it in Crystals"
sentiment:  Stampin' Up! "Teeny Tiny Wishes"
ribbon:  Offray
punches:  Stampin' Up!
adhesive:  foam tape

Happy Tuesday!

LOVING that tree! And of course thank you so much for playing along with our sketch challenge at Artful Delight!

Rosemary said...

June, I love your card (I say that a lot about your cards, and each time it is TRUE) - this is equally warm and yet classy and elegant as well - not easy to pull off. I agree with previous commenter who admired using the BG paper to make a tree, very clever.

(and thank you for always taking the time to stop by and see my card and leave me a thoughtful comment)

Debbie said...
