It's time for another Stampin' Queen's Sketch!

Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for this week's Stampin' Queens Sketch? We'd all LOVE for you to play along with us!

Here's our sketch for the week:

And here's my take on it:

I had my Pennant Parade as well as Riding Hood Red and Pear Pizzazz out on the table from the card I did on Monday, so I decided to just keep playing with that.

I started off with a Riding Hood Red base and added a layer of Whisper White on which I sponged some Riding Hood Red Ink because the white was just too stark for my liking.  I added a piece of Riding Hood Red Designer Series Paper to that and then moved on to the Pear Pizzazz.

I used a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock which I punched using the Scallop Border Punch and added a piece of Pear Pizzazz DSP on top. I adhered the Pear Pizzazz goodness to the Riding Hood Red and then tied the ribbons around before adding it all to the card base with a WHOLE BUNCH of Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the focal image, I stamped the tree base on Whisper White and then punched it out using the 1 3/4" circle punch. I also used a sponge with Riding Hood Red Ink on this piece.

I stamped the tree in Pear Pizzazz and punched it out, then adhered it to the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I added the circle to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock punched with the large (2 3/8") scalloped circle punch and then adhered it all to the card front using MORE Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede and punched it out using the Jewelry Tag Punch. After adding a piece of Baker's Twine, I attached it to the front of the card using a glue dot.
