Christmas Challenge #3

It's Monday and that means time for Sketch #3 for the Christmas Challenge Diva's. We would love for you to play along. Here is the sketch.
I turned mine on the side. That's the beauty of sketches, you can turn them around to fit your image. I really love how this turned out. I love the blue and brown together. The polka dot brown is double sided paper by Scenic Route called Ashville/Clayton Street. The "branch" design is on the opposite side and I thought it was perfect for this Hedgehog Snowman image by SU! called Holiday Hedgehog. I have one small piece of this paper left and sure hope the scrapbook store in Kearney has more as I love the colors and the polka dots.

The snowflake embossed (Cuttlebug) piece was cut with Cricut Cartridge "Accent Essentials". I don't have the SU! Top Notch die and love that I can cut about any size I want with the same look using the Cricut diecut machine. I also cut the Not Quite Navy oval cardstock with the George cartridge. Scallop piece was cut with Marvy punch.

The dark chocolate ribbon is from JoAnn Fabrics. I am getting low and will need to get another roll. I just wish we didn't live so far from there! It's hard to justify driving about 1.5 hrs one way for a roll of ribbon! LOL!!

To finish it off I used 3 mini antique brads by Making Memories, white ink for distressing, and antique large eyelets for the ribbon to go through.
