Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #187

Welcome to this weeks' Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I'm also playing along with Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags and the Muse Christmas Visions Challenge 71!  I was inspired by Chriss beautiful gold tag... the gold on the vellum was so beautiful I added some to my poinsettias.  I was also inspired by Tracey's tag on Day 18... the kraft with the red was so pretty hence my pop of reds on here!

So this week's sketch has a ton going on in it so it was quite the challenge to get all of the elements in here, but I think I did it!  If you look closely you can see I have the two base elements... the large rectangle is my half doily and urn from the CDD Urn Dies and the right rectangle is represented by the twigs from the CDD Winter Wonderland Dies (quickly becoming one of my favorites).  The tag was cut with CDD's Shaker Tag Dies.

Of course, I added the poinsettias from the Winter Wonderland dies where the flowers are and my sentiment is in the right place although not quite so large... so yeah... oh!  And the ribbon represents the strip under the flowers... there!

These poinsettia dies from the Winter Wonderland set.. um... yum!  And in vellum with some Nuvo Gold Mousse smeared on them... um...!  I punched the berries out of some gold metallic paper.  The leaves behind the poinsettias are from the same die set and I cut them from GOLD vellum... yup... got it so long ago and I don't even know where... I hope I can find more when my stash is depleted!

And the cute little birdie from the CDD Fall Hall Digis.. so cute in red!  And all of the natural twigs, leaves, berries are from the Winter Wonderland Dies also... like I said... fave!

So thanks for stopping by!  This will probably be all from me for a few days... don't miss me too much :) !  Here's the sketch... come and play along!

Here are the Craftin Desert Divas Products I've Used:

Shaker Tag Dies
Urn Dies
Winter Wonderland Dies

Santa's Helpers Stamp Set (for the sentiment)
