Monthly Sketch Challege...Happy Holidays Card

Welcome to my take on this months Sketch Challenge and Die~Namites Dare!!!

Every month a new sketch will be introduced....
the sketch can be interpreted as a card, layout or altered piece!

You need to use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.

You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog,
with mention of the Die~Namites Die used and a link back to the Die~Namites Dies blog.
Link your blog post, using Inlinkz, to the Die~Namites Die blog.

A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants
for a $25 Gift Certificate to the Die~Namites Dies.

Here is this month’s sketch.....

 Here is the card I made based on this wonderful sketch...

To create my card I used the Frosty Snowflake and Elegant Holly dies.

Both the Frosty Snowflake and Elegant holly were cut using a scrap of corrugated white cardstock that I found hiding in my stash...I love a good find!

As you can see from the close up photos the texture is amazing, and turned out different for each of the dies.

The tag was created by swiping it with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Stain first, then I layered Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire & Weathered Wood Distress Ink over top, creating this rich blue color, which really shows off the dies!  Once I had my base ink on the tag I added a few drops of water and a background stamp for a little added texture.

Be sure to play along with this month's sketch for your chance to win!!!  Just think it will get at least one more card ready for the fast approaching Christmas season.  Link up your creations using inlinkz HERE!  Good luck!
