Beate's Sketch
I’m so happy Beate is back, posting new Weekend Sketch challenges, because I really needed some inspiration for my 10 Holiday Card Challenge cards this month. I used her Sketch #55 and created these 3″ x 6″ Bashful Blue cards with it.

The tree and penguin were stamped with Night of Navy ink on Whisper White card stock and punched out with the Scallop Square punch. I sponged the edges with Bashful Blue ink and added a little bit of color to the images with markers. The Night of Navy mat measures 3-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ and is mounted over the striped grosgrain ribbon with dimensionals. The new Christmas greeting from the Best Yet hostess set was stamped in the bottom right corner.

Thanks for stopping by!
