Fireside Greetings

Card Patterns     CPS#145-Sketch
Our Creative Corner     All Ruffled Up Theme Challenge

It's the home stretch now for Christmas. If you haven't mailed your cards you will probably have to hand deliver them. No matter what the weather is outside a cozy decorated fireplace always makes the season seem brighter. 
I started with a great sketch from Card Patterns and used Cherry Cobbler dotted ruffled ribbon, gathered it and sewed down the middle to hold it in place. I used PrismaColor pencils to add a touch of color to the fireplace, a Martha Stewart border punch and a Making Memories poinsettia are the final touches to a warm inviting card.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
