Freshly Made Sketches #416

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week is Amy! 

I typed in today's date for my blog post, and was brought up short because Christmas is in a WEEK! Oh my goodness. No, I am not ready. I am not even ready for today! :)
But I am ready for this week's sketch!

We make jokes on the team about who doesn't like circles, and who has a hard time with things like today's wonky panels. It's fun to see what types of shapes and sketches are hard for each of us! I struggled a few weeks ago with a design that was simple for most everyone else, but today's idea came right away! That's always good. Especially when Christmas is in a week! EEK!

I had these new-to-me MFT dies sitting on my table, and when I was thinking up an idea for today's sketch, I knew I wanted to squeeze in another holiday card!

I used some gorgeous Peacock metallic cardstock from CutCardStock for the sentiment strip and background panel, and some beautiful paper from Momenta for the main panel. I cut the dove, branch, and sentiment out of Hammermill White cardstock, and voila! A ten minute card! The gluing of the sentiment took the longest. I used my favorite Connect Glue from Gina K. Designs, LLC.
I hope you will join us with your take on the sketch this week! Our challenge is open until 3 PM EST on Monday, January 6. More time to create! Click on the links on the FMS blog by each photo to see what my teammates have created on their blogs!
