Viva La Verve November Week 4 Sketch

VLV NOV 2015 Week 4 photo VLVNov15Week4pic.jpg

Maureen's sketch screamed snowflakes when I saw the circle clusters and I gleefully went with it :)  After all, snowflakes are my accessory of choice this time of year.

The sentiment is from Christmas in the Air, and since it had the word heart in it, I carried the theme over on to the little tab by adding a row of punched hearts.  Glad snowflakes come in any colour when you are crafting :)  A touch of bling on the snowflakes, a twine bow and a little row of piercing to balance things off.

Hard to believe we are in December already!  Thankfully my Christmas shopping is done and this weekend we will put up the tree and decorate.  A big task, but just love the result :)

Wishing you a glorious day!

Oh, Marisa, I so love this card with the snowflakes in green with the fabulous DP. And the tag with the twine is perfect too with the little hearts along the bottom. And what a great sentiment! Beautifully done sketch design! Hugs!

What an excellent Christmas card! I love the rich greens and rhinestone snowflakes.

This is just beautiful! I like the different sizes of snowflakes you've scattered around the tag.

Yes, putting up the tree is a big effort. I put one up at work (with only one other person's help) and yesterday many folks, us included, put up 3 trees at our church -- two REALLY tall ones and one 8-9 footer. I'm not ready yet to put ornaments on our tree at home! The girls got the tree down from attic and assembled though. They also decorated the whole house. I'm blessed!
