Flourishes and Basic Grey are sponsoring a sketch challenge at Page Maps and there is an awesome prize! I would encourage you to follow the link and check it out! I have combined this challenge with the one at Speedy the Cat's Friends to use dry or heat embossing.
At first I thought that I would pass on the challenge at Page Maps because the sketch was a little "busy" for me. But am so glad I decided to give it a try. I used a paper pack by Docrafts Papermania Classic Christmas, a stamp from the Flourishes set, All That Glitters, and a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Holly Ribbons. The ornament is colored with Stampin' Up's Sage Shadow and Ruby Red, with glitter added, and then cut with Spellbinders Nestability dies. I was thrilled with the outcome; hope you like it too!
Also have a couple of more photos to share if you're interested -- another variety of hibiscus we just had planted in our yard and one more gorgeous sunset!
Adios, from Lake Chapala, Mexico!
