Christmas Roses

Wow, time is flying and before we know it, Christmas will be upon us just as quickly as sketch # 29 at Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge  has arrived. I like the simplicity of this sketch, so I tried to keep it as such.I stayed pretty

true to the sketch this time.

Here is my take on this week's sketch. My card base is cut to fit
a 5 x7 with black card stock. I used  the lovely glitter paper
from  Close To My Heart  for the top, and the bottom piece is from the new Christmas paper pack Sparkle and Shine.
The roses and the leaves are  from the Art Philosophy Cart. The roses were inked with Ruby to darken them up. The little Noel Flag is from the Sparkle and Shine Assortment. I pulled those darling little gems from Base and Bling Black jewels. They went with the glitter paper so well, and was just the right finishing touch!  This card was quick and easy to do. I hope you will give it a try, and make sure you make good use of all your Bits and Pieces .


  1. I love the bling! It makes me think of Christmas Eve and the glittering trees! TFS

  2. Love it, great job. Your flowers are a perfect fit.

  3. Thought I would come by and see what you have been up to. Your Card is so Pretty! I am loving those roses. Have a great day!
