Welcome back to another week at TGIF.  We have a sketch challenge for you this week and I must say, it is very reminiscent of a card style you may have seen about 6 or 7 years ago.  I couldn't get those large scallops out of my head to begin with lol.  We would love to have you play along too.  Just click on the Challenge banner below to join us and upload your own work of art into our gallery.

I haven't really got into making my Christmas cards yet. I recently received the beautiful Poinsettia Petals bundle from Stampin' Up! which I hadn't taken for a test drive, so I was determined to use it for this challenge.

It would have been easy to do a red Poinsettia but I do like a bit of white on white.  I ended up stamping on Vellum and heat embossing my images with White embossing powder.  It's a very soft look but I love it.  The gold hoop was actually an after thought and I had to half pull my card apart to get it on there, but it fits the sketch perfectly.  Just wish I had thought about it a little earlier!

Keeping with the white and gold theme, I added Gold foil (no scallops!) to the top and bottom of my central panel and finished with the addition of the Gilded Gems.  I gold embossed the sentiment on Real Red card and then fussy cut that for the bold pop of colour through the middle of my card.  Hope you like it too!
