Noel.....{TKJ Sketch Challenge #149}{Post 3}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!

It is a BUSY morning here on my blog so if you are looking for

It is time for a new challenge over at
 The Kraft Journal!

This week the challenge is this sketch:
 I came up with this card. I hope you like my inspiration!
For my card I started out with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock card base and added a layer of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock as well as a layer of My Mind's Eye Christmas pattern paper.  Then I took some Brown Hemp from the Earthy Hemp Cord pack and wrapped it around my card mat 3 times, adhering it to the back of the mat using some tape.  
For the focal point of my card, I cut 2 ovals using my cameo, one in the Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and the other in the Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock. I stamped my sentiment, using My Creative Time's~ From Our Family to Yours stamp set and adding the decorative piece using a stamp from the Build a Postcard set. I added white gel pen to the "snow" on the "Noel" sentiment and then added some Diamond Stickles for some shimmer and sparkly. I also added some Red Stickles to the center of the ornament and the decorative piece....all to match the glittery pattern paper.
To further embellish my card, I took a Tiny Wooden Clothespin, added some more Red Stickles to it and when it was dry, hot glued a Cream Twill Tape bow to the center.
I attached the Tiny Wooden Clothespin to the sentiment piece, added foam pop dots to the back of the sentiment and centered it onto my card.

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
