Believe


I wanted to post this card today because its the latest Freshly Made Sketch 345 and I will be in time to enter the challenge. My problem is it too hot in the dining room to download photos and edit them in the afternoon.

As soon as I saw the sketch this idea took place, mainly because there is a baggie hanging in front of me of left over die cuts from last Christmas.

The Believe die is from Simon Says Stamp and the stamped sentiment is from the matching stamp set.  I also used the MFT Stitched Fishtail Sentiments. To make my poinsettia I used Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade with some Nuvo Crystal Drops Autumn Pearl. I wanted to add a bit more interest in the flower so I cut out the Pine Needle Wreath and added a couple underneath.

I knew I wanted a strip of red and white the tricky bit was finding which paper pack would I find it in. Surprising I had one piece left in the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies and since I cut a strip I will put the rest somewhere safe, I think I will repeat this card till the all the paper is gone.
