Jingle Belles Sketch - and not at the last minute!

This is my second attempt at the jingle belles sketch - the first one is in a time-out in the 'bad paper' basket. We'll see if it can play nice later ;)


Supplies: K&Co dimensional poinsettia; papers from MME & Prima; sentiment from Stampendous; Barn Door distress ink

I kept trying to force more patterned paper onto my card, and it just wasn't gelling. My bad. Even though the various reds don't match, I think the fact that there are LOTS of shades helps them all go together. Here's the sketch, since you still have several days to play along:


I still have loads of stuff to share, so there will be SO MANY POSTS all week :D
xoxo,

This is so striking, Jessi! A perfect card for mass production for Christmas. And I L-O-V-E the font of that sentiment. Perfect for this card!

Very pretty! You're right, the different shades of red all end up working together, the way *good* papers should. Not like the ones in your bad paper basket... :P

Oh, I love your second attempt! This is fab with all those shades of red. (If attempt number one decides to play nice, hopefully we'll get to see it here on your blog)

Time Out ... love that ... I have quite a few cards that go there ... love how those paper patterns coordinate with your poinsettia ... and what a great font on that sentiment ... always glad to see you at jingle belles.

Oh, this is gorgeous! Beautiful papers! They so beautifully compliment your poinsettia!

oooooooooooooooooh! ok, i seriously doubt you've EVER made anything that wasn't cool, but if sending the first one to "time out" resulted in this ♥GORGEOUSNESS♥ of C&S design, then i guess i have to support that decision, missus! bravo!!! ♥
