Sketch Challenge

Hello! I'm getting this on here very late because today was my youngest son's 1st birthday! My family drove down early and we had a small party for him this evening : ) It's kind of sad because I know he's my last baby, but on the other hand, there is a lot to look forward to as well! Anyway, this was the card I made for today's sketch challenge on Splitcoast which can be found here:

The colors I used are Baja Breeze and Real Red cardstock, and Stampin' Up Ski Slope Designer Series Paper. I added a zigzag stitch around the DSP panel and I used my Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder to emboss the red strip down the middle. I popped the image panel up on foam squares and added Stickles to the snowflakes and also to the punched snowflakes (I can't seem to get away from those punched snowflakes this week!) The stamp I used is a Penny Black stamp. Isn't he cute! I put brads in all the corners and it was complete! Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Oh this is adorable, Kerri! One of my friends uses this snowman a lot - he sure is cute! I love the zig zags - makes it look more country or something - just a really great touch.

Awww...your baby is 1 now; but being the youngest - he'll always be your baby!

Where ya' been, Kerri? Thanksgiving hustle and bustle got you away from creating? Hope all is good.

Yes, it was a busy weekend! We had family in town, did some black Friday shopping, and got all of our Christmas decorations up! I finally got the chance to sit down and make a card this morning!
