Season's Greetings - October SFYTT

Reverse Confetti's October Sketch For You To Try is winding down. Be sure to get your entry linked up by noon CST October 29 for a chance at a $20 gift certificate and 'Fetti Fave title!

Here's our October sketch:

For my sketch sample, I've created a focal point using some of the new holiday products. The Vintage Ornaments image is stamped in Reverse Confetti Brick ink onto Cloud White card stock, then die-cut with the Vintage Ornaments Confetti Cuts dies.

Behind the ornament is a layered wreath that I put together using the different elements from the Leafy Wreath Confetti Cuts die set. The base layer is a Lime Green wreath. Next are individual leaves die-cut from Cloud White and sponged with Avocado and Lime Green Ink. The pine branches are cut from Stone card stock and topped with Platinum Stickles. The berry clusters are cut from Cloud White card stock and topped with red flat-back pearls.

The first horizontal element of the sketch was done with a pair of notched banners that I die-cut with the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts dies out of Stone card stock. The second horizontal element is a strip of patterned paper from the Very Merry 6x6 Paper Pad topped with a vellum layer. In the background is an Avocado card stock layer, and the card base is Cloud White card stock.
