One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

The New Challenge

Lesley, over at Always Playing with Paper  put up a new sketch on her blog and asked us to join in the fun...this is the sketch:
There are a number of ways to interpret this sketch...like fellow blogger Lin (and my BFF), I saw Julie Ebersole videos with this technique so I thought I would give a try also.
I used a sentiment from PTI Stylish Sentiments:  Christmas and white embossed it onto the paper,
then I used some distress inks to swipe across the page, you can check out Julies blog to watch the video.  I added some shimmer stars and mounted it on a raspberry fizz card base.
 
Thanks, Lesley, I will look for more of your fun sketches, and I will remember this one too!
 
Have a great Sunday!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
