thanks to kazan's sketch #39!
lovely, isn't it?
for a while there, it was also beginning to look a little like i wasn't going to finish in time to meet this week's 2sketches4you deadline, but i pulled it off at the very last minute. here's my card:
(vintage sheet music and illustration from dickens' "a christmas carol"; patterned paper: love elsie & bo bunny, cardstock: coredinations; border strip: my mind's eye; sparkly branches: martha stewart; poinsettias & holly leaves: prima; brads: making memories; wordfetti sticker: 7 gypsies; ink: bazzill; pen: copic; adhesive: tombow monorunner)
loads of vintagey xmas bits, a few older scrapbooking products, plus a few newer ones; lots of layers, a little machine stiching, et voila! let the christmas card making begin in earnest...and also here in new jersey!!! :)
