A Sketchy Monday!

Hello Everyone!!!

Shari Carroll here to share some Sketchy FUN with you!!!  As part of this month’s challenge, we have come up with a few sketches for you to play with.  I will be exploring the possibilities with them all this week.

This first sketch card was totally inspired by THIS Tami Hartley card.  I love the offset space to work with.  And the colors…Ooolala.. that comes from THIS Kelly Rasmussen card. (These girls both ROCK!!!).  I’ve pulled out a nice mix of our Designer Papers and was able to incorporate non-holiday items for a holiday card.

Here’s a close-up of the resist trees.  Very simple!!

Oh and… I’m in LOVE with our Large Pearls!!!

    This card is so sweet and subtle, yet it pops with those super cute tree’s! I really like the look of gems in place of “ornaments” on a christmas tree. I looked at the links for Tami and Kelly, to see where you got your inspiration from, and i adore everything about their cards.

    [...] of holiday cards, I really like the design shared by Shari Caroll on the Hero Arts blog this week. Another one that could be created in bulk without a lot of pricey one of a kind [...]
