Mocha Morning Tree Trimmings for sketch challenge


I love the warm colors in the Mocha Morning Specialty Paper pack, so I pulled out a few patterns to work with for The Paper Players sketch challenge. And since I was designing cards for my Tree Trimmings class yesterday I used that stamp set. I started with a Very Vanilla card, and used Early Espresso ink and card stock. The ornament is embossed and I used two short pieces of 1/8" Early Espresso taffeta for the bow and hanger, and a few pearls to add some class. Here's the sketch:


Since I centered the sentiment (which is from Christmas Lodge), I didn't feel the extra embellishment on the oval was needed.

Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Christmas Lodge;
Ink: Early Espresso classic pad;
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Mocha Morning Specialty;
Accessories: Oval Scallop Die for the Big Shot, dimensionals, clear embossing powder, basic pearls, 1/8" Early Espresso taffeta.
