not surprisingly, the sketch is terrific, and will immediately give you a ZILLION ideas:
see? told you!!! :) i nearly ran rings around myself logically, from having so many good vibes off that thing! finally, i found the best round element EVER--santa's sleigh against the full moon, taken from an old ideals magazine--and everything else fell into place:
(vintage: santa illustration; patterned paper: love elsie, my minds eye; chipboard coaster: gin-x; stickers: creative imaginations, 7 gypsies, love elsie, making memories, my minds eye; ribbon: pixie dust paperie; adhesives: tombow monorunner, uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)
my stack of stuff on the right is a whole bunch of different word-fetti's...many which are nearly old enough to also be called vintage; plus there's some pixie seam binding (my fave!) and an elderly chipboard "coaster" frame. since i had soooo many layers there, i somewhat stylized the accent on the left edge; instead of flowers or snowflakes i went with punched scallops, which i think/hope serves the same balancing purpose.
i'm sure you're planning to head on over to JINGLE BELLES to see allison's and stef's cards...so i won't bother to mention the deadline info (3-23 at 6pm)...or the little prize... :) :) :)
