Happy Holidays Sketch!

This is for today's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast that you can see here:

This layout was perfect for my little snowman by Whipper Snapper! I used Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip CS, and the DP is from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding. I colored the snowman's hat and scarf with Baja Breeze ink and an aquapainter, cut him out with Circle Nestabilities and popped him up on a punched scalloped circle. I used the Swiss Dots CB folder on the Baja Breeze Panel. The brown strip is 7/8" brown grosgrain ribbon. The white fuzzy ribbon I found at Michaels. I tied a bow with silver cording and hung the sentiment by Inkadinkado from it with some wire. I added fern leaves that I punched with the Martha Stewart Fern punch, and silver brads to the corners. I hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by

Lots of little embellishments on this one - cute cute cute! The fern punch - who knew? I didn't get it because I didn't think I'd use it...what was I thinking!

This card was on the gallery front page 4 places at the same time! It was a recent upload, a favorite, the challenge, and the comments section! Lots of hits. Great job, Kerri.

Thanks, Michelle! I know, I never thought I would use the fern punch either, but then I saw so many cute ways to use it! I'm definitely glad I got it : ) Thanks, mom for the nice comments : )

Well deserved, my dear. You are doing a great job. I'm always anxious to see what you come up with next.
