Candy Cane Wishes for FMS363…

Hello Everyone!

I am Posting this EARLY…I have a Craft Fair Today and I am

going to be leaving very Early…so this will be several hours early!

Making all the items for the Craft Show has put me in the Christmas Spirit!

I have Christmas on the Brain!

Many of the Challenges out their in Blog Land

are now doing Christmas themed Challenges…

…although I am at goal for my Christmas Card Stash,

I just can’t resist a Christmas Challenge!

Today’s Card is for a Sketch Challenge and it is NOT Christmas…

…but I couldn’t resist turning this sketch onto a Christmas Card!

 

Here is the Sketch Challenge from

Freshly Made Sketches #363

FMS 363

At first glance, it looked as if this sketch was asking

for the DSP to make a large statement…the decision was…what DSP?

As mentioned before, I was at max for Christmas Cards, but….

I had to make a ‘sweet’ card!!!

 

Here is my take on the Sketch!

I really like this DSP! It is called Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP.

The ‘Specialty’ is that some of the DSP is flocked!

Those ‘white stripes’ in the DSP…flocked! So Pretty!

I also used the new ‘Candy Cane Builder Punch’!

The Punch, punches out the Candy Cane AND the bow!

The Stamp Set is a 2 Step Stamp Set and I liked the that I could

put the greeting inside the Candy Cane!!!

 

Here is the inside of the Card!
