Reverse Confetti Sketch for You To Try #19

It's the first of the month, which means that 
I have a card to share for the Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try #19: 

Right away, those circles reminded me of Christmas decorations, 
so I decided to use this fun sketch to make a Christmas card.

I started with some rustic white card stock and stamped the line from I Like You five
times and heat embossed them in gold.
I die cut my stars using Oh My Stars and stamped my sentiments from Bring On The Merry,
heat embossing the ampersand in gold.

Here's a close-up so you can see the shine.


Be sure to head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see
the other designers' takes on the sketch and to play along, if you'd like.

Also, before you go, I just wanted to let you know that I have a card on the 
Bazzill Basics Blog today, using their December Chemistry of Colour.

Thanks for looking!

What a great idea to turn that sketch into a design for hanging ornaments! That is SO fun and cute. Love the touches of gold that you added. Your Bazzill deer card is really gorgeous, too! Love the framework. Wow!

Stars...a wonderfully inspired interpretation of the sketch and, of course, the sentiment is the perfect complement. Off to see your Chemistry of Colour card...

Back from seeing your card and left a comment, which I'll share here, too: Gorgeous card, Leigh and your tip for extending the frame: CLEVER! I would have had a conniption, then started over! You've shared an invaluable technique!
