...Farm Fresh Sketch By Jessica

Don't forget to enter to win some yummy BLOG CANDY at THIS post {be sure to read the "rules" also}
This is my submission for Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm's blog. Today's challenge is actually a sketch from our fearless Design Team Coordinator, Jessica Diedrich! I also wanted to incorporate the Color Challenge #239 from SCS this week {Kraft, Mellow Moss, and Whisper White}, but I had to add a pop of Ruby Red...hope it still qualifies for the challenge! LOL! I used the new TGF set "Keep Cozy" simply because I adore this set...I think these little snowmen are the cutest things ever! I used several stamps from the set starting with the small snowflake to create some custom patterned paper on the small Kraft Cardstock panel. The sentiment was embossed on the moss patterned paper from the Patterns Pack III, then the precious snowman was embossed on Watercolor Paper. He was colored with Classic Pads and an Aquapainter before being cut out and popped off of the focal panel with Dimensionals. The scallops were created with the Fiskars' Apron Lace Border Punch, then Antique Brass Brads were added in place of the ribbon.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all again tomorrow with a card for the C4C challenge! Until then...
