Happy Holidays

Good Morning,
Here's this week's Skipping Stones Design sketch. 

Here's my card:
(sorry for the crappy pic, it rained most of the day and I had to do this inside)

Instead of patterned paper, I went with texture for the background.  The bird is a sticker from Martha Stewart.  I heat embossed the edges of the scallops with VersaMark ink and Lindy's Stamp Gang 'Golden Angel Wings' embossing powder.  I got it when I was in Edmonton in the summer and it's fast becoming one of my favorite embossing powders.  It's hard to see in the picture, but it has such a wonderful shimmer to it.  I used Sentiment Frames (still waiting on my SSD stamps to come in the mail, Canada post is being soooo slow, so am using the one set I own already).

Make sure you visit the SSD blog check out all the DT inspiration and play along with this weeks' sketch.  They give away a stamp set each week...and you get to choose which set you get.  :)

Thanks for dropping by today,

LOVE the way you used different embossed papers in the sketch while keeping the cream papers the same. Absolutely gorgeous!
