Freshly Made Sketches: Peace & Joy

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's sketch  we have a sketch by Linda.

I have been in a bit of a panic over Christmas cards.   I've never waited until July before.  It's not so much that I send that many.  My issue is that my favorite cardmaking seasons are autumn and Christmas.  So I generally have a big jump on Christmas cards in the spring and summer so I can focus on autumn when it arrives.  Somehow it's wrong to get a jump on autumn in the spring and summer, but it's OK to do Christmas.   Yeah - I know - it's all a bit obsessive.

Anyway, I saw snowflakes in those circles.

I struggle with photographing foil or glitter.  The card is actually quite a bit lighter and brighter than the above photo shows.

Also a shout-out to Color Throwdown.  A few weeks ago they had their 500th challenge (a big congrats!) but I have to admit, I first wrinkled my nose at the colors.  But then I saw the design team inspiration - and then I saw what so many of you made - and I decided it was a fabulous color combo.  This particular challenge is over, but I did want to give them the credit for my colors!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
