Love, Faith, Hope


This is the sketch for the December monthly sketch challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog.  Make sure you visit the blog to get all the details.  You have the whole month to enter and the winner receives a stamp set of their choice.

Here is my card to give you some inspiration.


I started with this delightful image from Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Hope Love Faith Stampette Set, embossed with Log Cabin embossing powder.  I added Bridal glitter to the snow and Fire Engine Red glitter to the berries.  The words were embossed with Winter White embossing powder and cut out with a Spellbinder Classic Oval die.  I popped them up on top of a sparkly border of pine created with a punch and Meadow Spark glitter.  The green background layer is embossed with an embossing folder and more glitter added on the edges.

Don’t forget to check out the samples from other design team members here.
