From Our Family to Yours......{TKJ}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
 The Kraft Journal!
This week the challenge is:
Use Any Sketch
so I used a sketch from one of my favorite go to sketches....
The Deconstructed Sketch

And made this Christmas card..
my first of the year :)
Here it is..hope you like it!
Turned out so pretty don't you think???
This is how I made it...I started out with a piece of Brown Kraft Cover weight Card Stock and then added my layers of designer paper using the Echo Park~Winter Park paper pad. To add some more to the paper, I ran a border using my sewing machine :) which also helped to hold the White Twill Tape in place.
Next using my favorite new stamps and dies from My Creative Time, I made this gorgeous rosette and added my sentiment popped up using some dimensionals.
Here is a closeup of the ornaments I made. I again used some MCT dies and then using some liquid glue from Tombow, I made my designs and then added some beautiful silver glitter glass.
And this is how I finished off the adding a Custom Fastener with some more silver glass glitter

Supplies Used:
Echo Park~Winter Park
Stamps~ My Creative Time~ 
Dies~ My Creative Time~
Ornament Dies from Warm Holiday Fun
Embellishments~ White Twill Tape
sewing machine
pop dots

So there you have it....
