Good morning!
First off a bit of housekeeping, this will be the last sketch posted until the new year. It's a busy time of year around here and it gets tough trying to squeeze in creative time throughout the holidays. FTL122 will be posted in about 3 weeks time, around January 7th.
Now, on to the sketch! This one is ultra simple. I tend to look at layouts like this and I just feel content. There's something very relaxing about keeping a layout very low-key.
And here's my take on the sketch. I had a few thinner scraps lying around from Christmas cardmaking, so I made use of a few!
  • Stamps: Patterned Pines (Stampin' Up!), Holidays Treats (Papertrey Ink)
  • Cardstock: Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, White
  • Ink: Ripe Avocado Rich Cocoa
  • Accessories, etc. : Scallop Die (Medium), Limitless Layers 1-3/4 circle
As always, feel free to leave your link below!
