Tuesday Morning Sketches #735

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  The latest and second to last sketch of 2023 is up on Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's easy.  But, it's really up to you on how easy you want to make it.  Or make it look!

My card features Winter Birdhouse dies from Spellbinders, the pine bough is from Honey Bee Stamps, Holy Stars stencil from Simon Says Stamp and glitter paste from Tonic Studios.  This was easy, but it's very striking, if I say so myself.  What do you think....

I absolutely love how this card turned out.  I left it without a sentiment because I haven't decided if I want to send as a Christmas card or a Winter card.  All the dies are from Spellbinders except the boughs.  Those I had die cut from the Layered Candy Canes die set from Honey Bee Stamps and then I didn't end up using them on the card I was working on.  They were just laying on my table and I am so glad they were!  I used a piece of blue card stock - it might be Brocade Blue from SU! and then I took some ink from Nuvo and darkened the edges.  I feel this really allowed to the biggest star to look like it is the brightest shining star.  Like I said, I love how this turned out - and I used my mixed media stuff on a card.  Glacier Paste and embellishment mousse to make splatters and snow.  

I hope this inspires you to create something to join our challenge!  We'll see you over at TMS.

Awesome card. I like the birdhouse--kinda reminds me of gingerbread house. The glittery stars are gorgeous.
