Keesh's Inkspiration Sketch #12

This is a gorgeous sketch, must keep a copy of it as I think I'll use it again. It is another challenge from the fabulous Keesh, who sadly is hobbling around with a very sore foot. (Get better soon Keesh!!!)

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I went with a Christmas theme as I have to post my brother's family's Christmas gifts this week (they live in Russia) and needed a card to include. I cracked open some new goodies for this card. I love this 'Ski Slope' paper from the Spring mini. I inked up the "Christ is Born" stamp for the first time, as I also did with the 'Tree Trimming' stamp (also from the mini, there is so much to love in this little catalogue!). I used grosgrain Riding Hood Red ribbon and the new Jumbo Brads (need I say...). The red flower and little flower stamps are from the 'Season of Joy' stamp set (this one is actually from the IB&C).

I love this colour combo of Riding Hood Red, baja Breeze, Old Olive & Choc Chip and I'm really pleased with how this card turned out.

Must run, off to work again,
