It’s time for a new challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week the lovely Cindy Hall is our hostess. I love how all of Cindy’s cards have such fabulous details, and her sketch this week is a great one.
I love stars, and the Bright & Beautiful set was the first thing on my wish list when I first saw the Holiday catalog. But have I actually used it yet? No. Not until this week. I’m not sure why. Stars are an easy go-to for me for birthdays or graduation cards, but I guess not so much for Christmas cards. I decided that I really needed to ink these pretty stars up, so I pulled them out for this sketch.
I have been itching to use this Gorgeous (with a capital G) silver satin ribbon for a while now, so when I saw the sketch I knew it would be perfect. I planned my color combo based entirely on the ribbon. 🙂
The smaller stars in the background were stamped with Silver Encore ink and the large star was embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.
We hope you can make time to join us with this challenge. We love seeing how you interpret the sketches each week. You can see what the design team did with the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site for a little inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

So so pretty,Amy!! The silver with the red is just a perfect color combo! And i think you should use this beautiful star more often!!
Love this Amy!! I too have that silver and gold ribbon and haven’t used it yet. I may have to copy this card just so I can use my ribbon! 🙂
So pretty! Love silver, red and white for the holidays!
That ribbon is a stand-out and so deserves to have a gorgeous card based around it! The red star really pops off the card and looks fantastic.
So elegant! And wow that ribbon is gorgeous! Beautiful card for the holidays!
I think the stars are perfect for a Christmas card. Especially with the silver ribbon and DSP. What an elegant card this is!
Wow! So beautiful Amy! I love the soft neutral colours with that bright pop of red! I love that ribbon and knew I should have ordered some!!!!
This card is gorgeous and perfect, from the silver ribbon to the bright red star and all the way down to the silver brad. Beautiful design, Amy!
This is lovely! Silver as a background for red – elegant. Amy, thank you for an inspiration.

Planning around that ribbon was totally the way to go and yes, you needed to ink this up! With as many cards as I have made with this, I’m still in love with it. And this is why! Gorgeous!
