I totally forgot that this week was one of my weeks to create with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. In my defense I have been very busy creating, cutting, sorting, counting, re counting, double checking and finalizing all the details for my upcoming Christmas Card Workshops. These workshops are huge in that my crafting friends are creating 20 cards (2 each of 10 designs) that I have designed and pre-cut, etc. for them. Some of my regular crafters call this annual workshop our yearly epic event and they do work hard!
Three of the cards for this years workshop are from CTMH's White Pines Cardmaking Workshop on the go. I like to use the WOTG's as a starting point and of course I love that I can make the cards cards my own... some years I change the cards a lot and other years not so much. This year, not so much.

I re created this card with just a few extra's, instead of stapling the Fern Extra Thick Twine, I knotted it. I also added one of the little Kraft Paper Birds from the White Pines Complements. To finish off the cards I added a few bitty spakes and a few of the Red Enamel Gems.
For this card I switched out the Cranberry Cardstock and Ink for Ruby. I dry embossed the ruby cardstock with the stripes Embossing Folder. I also made the White Daisy and Fern (new colour!) cardstock pieces smaller as they just seemed to big to me and it also allowed me to add a few of the Kraft Snowflakes from the White Pines Complements.
For this card I switched out the Fern and Cranberry Cardstock and for Olive (retired colour) and Pomegranate (new colour)! I heavily sponge ink distressed the white daisy base and cardstock with Champagne ink to give it a more antique look and decided to leave off the Fern Extra Thick Twine. I also added a few larger sparkles and a dark red Enamel Gem to my star.
Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.
