A Verve Noel
When I first saw this sketch I was a little leery due to all the layers, but once I started working with it things fell into place. My starting point was some delicious Kaiser Craft Winter Wonderland paper, which unfortunately is mostly covered up.
I used Labels 17 nesties for the two side panel shapes and the doily is a PTI die. The snowflake is embossed in bronze and hand cut (yes, the newly released dies to fit this snowflake are on my wish list!), and since I don't own burgundy buttons or half pearls, I had to use dark red ones instead...but I think they passed as the burgundy paper is more towards the red side - phew!
Now that I'm working for hubby again, I'm coveting any craft time I can get :) Mind you I can't complain too loudly (just quietly to all of you lol) as I get to work from home which saves me driving time etc. and allows an easy transition to the after school kids. Love the fact we can work together as a team and since my parents did so for about 40 years, I guess it is in my blood :)
Have a fabulous day and thank you for stopping in today (((hugs))).
