Sketch Challenges, again!

I can't seem to make a card without a sketch to follow. At any rate, this card is for the monthly sketch challenge at The Stamp Shack. I am loving this sketch and will use it again in non-Christmas card style. For now, I'm stuck on Christmas and Merrybella. You can see the challenge here.

This card is 5" x 5" square. The base is Night of Navy cardstock. The large DP panel is about 3-3/4" x 4-3/4" and the paper is by Reminisce. I carefully pasted little bits of opposing papers for the bars and did the same on the SU Scallop punched out bit. Then I stamped Merrybella onto some PTI Select White cardstock, and matted it with some DP and more Night of Navy. The brads and snowflake were added, but I thought it was still missing something. Out came the TAC snowflakes and I stamped them using my new Dew Drop Brilliance inks in Platinum. I even stamped them on the white cardstock and they actually show up in the pic. Of course, no Christmas card of mine is complete without the addition of Stickles and, in this case, I used Crystal Stickles.

All in all, I'm pleased with the way this turned out and I hope you are, too!

Great card, Barb. I love the little trick you did on the right side of the paper.
