Freshly Made Sketch #12 & The Paper Players Challenge #73

Hi All,
Got home a little early from work and was procrastinating about going to the gym so thought I would take up a card challenge (or in this case 2!!). I went on over to the Paper Players Blog and was interested in this weeks color challenge. They challenged you to use Silver, Whisper White and Night of Navy and I really loved the samples. These colors are great together! Well the next step was a sketch so I hopped onto the Freshly Made Sketches Blog and checked out this weeks sketch:
I really liked the layout. So I used Whisper White as my base and added a layer of Night of Navy. For the center band I used Silver Glimmer paper, edged it with Whisper White and did a simple layer of the White Organza ribbon. For the circle I started with a circle of Glimmer paper with a layer of Night of Navy that had been stamped with the tree from Christmas Lodge in the Silver Frost paint. Hard to tell in the picture with the lighting, but it is very pretty! Finally my sentiment was stamped in Whisper White craft ink. I am really happy with the results! These challenges are great for the creativity!
Have a great Thanksgiving!
Karin
