Freshly Made Sketches #115

Hello there!  I'm sorry that I haven't been keeping up with my blog posts lately.  Things are a bit crazy right now - long hours at work - and my mojo keeps trying to slip away.  Over the long Thanksgiving weekend I managed to pull off another big purge in the craft room, mostly paper this time.  And we managed to get out and get a Christmas tree and it's all decorated - woohoo!  We still have the outside lights to put up, but so far we're ahead of last year.

So, what's new?  A new sketch, that's what!  Jennifer Timko is our lovely hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week and she has a super versatile sketch for us!  I decided to use the sketch to showcase some really pretty patterned paper.  And, of course, it has snowflakes on it!  What?!

I have to admit I struggled with this card!  I wanted so badly to add some bling.  I finally appeased that need by adding the little snowflake with a tiny rhinestone.

Here is Jennifer's great sketch:
