Peace on Earth! A Throwdown and a Sketch!

MFTWSC179Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a Christmas card!   I know it is only June, but last year I was short a few and had to make some in a rush.  I like have a nice stash ready to go when it is time to start mailing them.   I figured an earlier start could not hurt.  

I am playing along with The Color Throwdown Color Challenge and MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge.  

My card uses the following MFT Products.  Card stock sample pack, Blueprints 2 and 13, Horizontal Stitched Strips dienamics, Stencil on the diagonal(embossed),
MPD Starry Christmas stamp set and Starry Christmas dies  You Mean the World to Me dienamics cut with vellum, and
Sequin dienamics cut with white glittered card stock.  I cannot get over how easy it is to emboss with these stencils.  I went over the embossed paver red with some versamark to make the embossing stand out even more.  I embossed the bubblegum pink dove with some white embossing powder.  Love the soft peaceful feel of the pink with the vellum.  

I really like the simplicity of this sketch for Christmas cards.  May need to make some more in different colors.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
