...On The 6th Day of Sketches

This is my sample for the 12 Days of Sketches-Sketch 6 at The Greeting Farm Blog. Since this week's Farm Fresh Friday falls on Christmas, we've decided to move the challenge to coincide with the sketches challenge. I used the newly released "Yoga Anya" along with some of my Amy Butler "Sola" patterned papers from K & Company. I matched up the image with a sentiment from TGF's set "Me Time Anya". I watercolored the image, cut it out, then attached it to the focal panel with Dimensionals. Instead of using a piece of patterned paper on the large panel on the right side of the card base, I decided to emboss it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I pierced the edges of the flowery panel with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then added some Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon around it. The sentiment panel was punched out with the Word Window Punch before being attached to the ribbon.

That's it for me's Christmas Eve, so that means getting to spend time with my mom and daddy! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a special post! Until then...
