My First Tuesday Morning Sketch

Here it is!
My first "challenge" card ever! I took a look at the Tuesday Morning Sketch last night and decided that I could do this one. I'm doing the Tuesday Morning Sketch because I'm not brave enough to actually be judged yet. My hubby thinks I'm awesome and so do my friends. I won't clue them into what others can least not yet!
On to the card -- The base is a trillion pieces (ok, maybe just a lot) of winter themed 1" squares (cut from the Holiday Collection DCWV paper pad) arranged on point to look like a quilt. Over the top I placed a matching sheet of blue vellum. I used Making Memories superfine glitter on my snowflake and "it's a holiday party" stamps. I attached the two with vellum tape from 3M; the hero of all things sticky!
This is the front side of the 15 New Year's Eve party invitations that I will be sending out soon. Good thing it was fun!
Thanks for looking!

And now, I'm idiotically giddy!


  1. Awesome! :) Glad that you're taking the plung into the sketch challenge world... after all, its really just to keep you motivated to create. Again, YOU YOU YOU! No worries about what other people do! Although I never show my hubs what others can do either. Haha.

    Anyhoo, this card is so fun! :) Looks like a lot of work cutting out the squares but its awesome! And love the vellum and the glitter!!! Hotness!

  2. Very nice! I like the quilt look. I think it's a fun one to do. I should try it out more often. Card looks great and now you did a challenge! YAY!

  3. Your quilt look is lovely! I am so glad you finally decided to join in the fun instead of just watching it. You did a wonderful job!

    Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
