I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #400 today.  I love the sketch they have chosen. I believe it is a great way to showcase designer series paper, which is one of my favorite products!


And here is the sketch I followed.



I used the Wrapped In Plaid 6 X 6 DSP as my background papers.  I chose two pieces that had Shaded Spruce, Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler.  The top piece is Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  I layered all of the pieces with Whisper White except the sentiment, which is layered on Night of Navy.  The stocking is colored with Stampin’ Blends and is hanging from the curl of the B in Believe.

This was a really great sketch to use. I hope you will add it to your file of sketches.
