I played along over at Rochelle's Scrappy Friends challenge with this awesome sketch:
I also played along with the Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. I actually used 8 things from the list: a banner, snowflakes, stripes, a cut file, stickers, fussy cutting, patterned paper, and a label.
Here are some details. I only had one photo, so I decided to use this cute penguin, cut from one of the cut-apart cards in the collection, inside a frame to substitute for the second picture. The little houses were cut from a patterned paper.
I used a snowflake in place of the circle in the sketch. This is a free cut file from Paper Issues called Circles and Snowflakes.
I elevated some of the elements with pop dots for added dimension.
I love these little banners I got at Michael's. I wish they had other colors besides black. They're by Recollections.
I hope you'll come play in the Paper Issues challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate to the PI store, and for sure give this sketch a try too!
