Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #239

Hello friends!

It's time for another great sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! Here it is:

Here is what I created:

I played with a bit of a vintage feel.  I grabbed a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder and some Ruby Cardstock (CTMH). Once it was embossed I distressed it slightly with some sandpaper and Distress Inks (Brick Red & Antique Linen).  I added a bunch of embellishments from my October Afternoon Stash and some retired Stampin' Up! ribbon.  I'm really trying to work from my stash for the next few months, and Sketch Challenges are the perfect opportunity to do so!

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Beccy's Challenge - Month of Holiday Cards
Little Miss Muffet Challenges #176 - Anything Goes
Three Amigos Bloghop Challenges #8 - Beary Christmas
I hope you will come and play along with us!

See you next time!



  1. I love the vintage feel of your card Jess, the colours and images are fabulous! The strip of pleated ribbon is a nice touch and add lots of wonderful texture to your project, as does the embossing in the background. Love the buttons too.

  2. What a sweet card. I too am trying not to buy anything new and just use what I have.

  3. So very cute!! Love the images and buttons! So cute! Happy you are playing along with us at Three Amigos!

  4. That's just fab! Nice done of the sketch.
