Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #75

Great Sketch Challenge this week at Atlantic Hearts.  It was very versatile and easy to work with and gave me a great place to start on my card with lots of room for artistic!
  I've been wanting to get going creating with this month's CTMH Stamp of the Month Home for the Holidays.  It's a great mostly holiday set and uses some of the cuts from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (an oldie but a goodie).  I wanted to use the set with some non-traditional colors so this is what I came up with.
The background is embossed with the CTMH Quatrefoil embossing folder.  I stamped a border with the candy stamps in the set on the white cardstock behind the bear and then a few extras to add as embellishments.  The colors are Pixie, Pear, and Lagoon with a bit of black and whisper.  I colored the wrappers in with markers.  The postage stamp and tag cuts are from Art Philosophy.  I had cut a whole page of images for this set and found that one of the tag sizes was perfect for a sentiment from the Be Jolly Hostess Set.  A little liquid glass, some glitter, a few gems here and there, ribbon and done!
Thanks for stopping by and if you've been having trouble lately getting started try one of the challenges out there to get your creative juices flowing!  Also, thanks to all the people who run these challenge blogs!
