Pinecone Sketch

I know that I shouldn't, but I'm starting to get in the holiday spirit what with the debut of some Christmas stamps, catalogs, papers, and embellishments everywhere!  I used this week's versatile sketch by Karren Johnson at Freshly Made Sketches to add to my Christmas card stash...


Here is my card...


Stamped the sentiment from A Muse Studio's "It's a Wonderful Life" set on black cardstock in white ink for a chalkboard look. The background is stamped with the most realistic woodgrain image I've ever seen....Stampin Up's "Hardwood" background!


The festive pine bough is from Waltzingmouse Stamps "Festive Foliage" set.  Added some linen red gingham washi tape and red jingle bells to amp up the rustic cheer :)  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Gorgeous tag Kelly! I love the chalkboard inking and why do those jingle bells always make me think of you? Love the TM gingham too! Beautiful!

Love this card Kelly! I love that stamp you used for the sentiment, I think is the same one you used in one of the kits you sent out. I have been looking for that set ever since! Love this!

I'm totally in love with this beautiful card. The only problem is that now I have several new things to add to my wish list. :)
