MAKE MERRY

It's been awhile since I participated in one of the CAS(e) This Sketch challenges. But when I saw their Challenge #86 this week, I just had to give it a try.

My first impulse was to REALLY CASE the sketch. It is so cute, and I really wanted to use a bumblebee and the honeycomb embossing folder, etc. Since that was just a bit obvious (although I LOVE the idea!), I decided I could quickly squeeze in another Christmas In July card if I hurried. And I would use this darling sketch for my inspiration.

At my August Stamp-In Workshop, I had wanted to have a card for the girls to make utilizing the same technique as I'd introduced in my previous post (Marble-ous Ornaments). So, I decided to change my original design up a bit to make it more workshop-friendly.


Don't you just love the Decorative Dots embossing folder that I used in the background? Doesn't it look like either snowballs or really big snow(flakes) falling?

Here's the sketch that was my inspiration:


Merry
Smiles.
