Freshly Made Sketches: Season's Greetings

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Linda and here’s what I did with it!
11.10.21 FMS side

This sketch seemed like a great sketch to show off a beautiful paper or a beautiful embossing folder! I find the 3D folders absolutely amazing, especially those by Altenew. I had their Perfect Poinsettias waiting to be used so out it came to be shown off.

Then it needed a bit of decoration.  Hello Bluebird has a couple of die sets that include greenery beautiful bows. I have both of them because you never know which will work the best. I saw the set with the skinny bow and it inspired me to do it in gold then add a mat of skinny gold to coordinate with it.  Then I added just a touch of greenery and red berries behind

I wanted to bring a little more green in with the sentiment (those are the same greens no matter what they look like in the photo!) so I decided to heat emboss in gold. I used Simon Says Stamp Good Cheer set which includes simple, classic greetings. I like how it looks on the busy background!! (That's my clean and simple brain - if something is busy, something has simple has to counteract it!)

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