We Wish You a Merry SKETCH-mas

This week we've got a Sketch to inspire you (someday I'll learn how to make fancy digital sketches ... but for now, a ruler & black sharpie are my tools).  The circle can be any shape ... have fun with it.

Here's what we created:

Stephanie says, "I knew I wanted one of my dimensional, glittery gift tags to be my focal image, so I build my panels around it ... I used solid blue, *Merry Christmas* embossed red and glittery white to frame my Christmas Owl.  I finished with an SRM Sticker sentiment."

Lauren says, "At the moment I'm pretty addicted to watercolor paints and hand lettering, so I thought I'd try to incorporate that into my card. Thanks to the awesomely segmented design, I was able to work the sentiment on a separate piece of watercolor paper... just in case it didn't come out well on the first try. :) I also had fun painting a bunch of multi-colored holly leaves; and slightly less fun cutting all of them out, lol, but I *love* the dimension they give to the finished card!"

Can't wait to see what you create with my sketch.  The link-up ends at 6pm (EST) on May 6th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:15:09. ♥
