Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy...

It was a warm (for Manhattan in November) weekend and we had a few outdoor frolics before winter sets in. I did manage to squeeze in a little creativity for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch challenge. I got to play with a fun card kit from this week's sponsor, and if you have a chance to play, you could win a fun prize! Ms. Kazan put forth another terrific sketch and I came up with a festive little holiday card.

  1. Trim patterned paper, adhere cardstock strip. Attach pearl string with glossy accents (or similar strong adhesive.)
  2. Adhere ribbon. Tie bow, attach felt star. Spell out "JOY" with stickers. Tag punch, draw stitching, and adhere.
