Winter Birch Greetings — FMS415

We have a new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is the repeat Artisan award-winning, card maker extraordinaire, Narelle Farrugia.  Take a look at this fun sketch:

I had the still unopened October Paper Pumpkin kit sitting on my desk, and when I saw the sketch I thought the sparkly birch trees in the kit would work with this sketch.  So I blended an ink background using Night of Navy and Pool Party inks, and then added a couple of the birch trees and one of the sweet cardinals to make a little wintery scene.

The stamp set included in the kit has a snow stamp, which I stamped and embossed using white embossing powder.  The sentiment, which is also in the included stamp set, was also embossed on a piece of Poppy Parade card stock.

Some Snowflake Sequins were also added for some additional sparkle.  This was a pretty quick card to pull together.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
