Non-timed Timed Challenge

Sketch Challenge

I’ve been so busy this week I forgot all about the timed challenge.  Can you believe it?  Friday I did sit down to stamp though and sort of inadvertently came up with a card that fits this sketch.  The problem?  I didn’t know I was going to make that card and therefore I didn’t watch the time.  Oh well!  Here’s what I made.

Stampin' Up! Snow Swirled stamp set

I used the Snow Swirled stamp set for the Christmas tree and the Come to Bethlehem stamp set for the sentiment.  I love the Vintage Wallpaper embossing don’t you?  It is such a deep impression behind the soft, thin seam binding!

The colors in the card are Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke.

So, what do you think?  I know I could easily remake the card in way less than the 15 minutes but I know it took me way longer to make it in the first place, I was trying out all kinds of different layouts when I came up with this one!

I love all of the comments you all have been leaving – thank you!


  1. Love the simple elegance of this card. tfs

  2. Yes, I do like it very much. That embossing works really well with that Christmas tree stamp and I like the colors you used. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  3. Beautiful! Love the embossing in the background!

  4. Another “delicious” card, Becky; it’s just plain pretty! I like the browns and the sponging with just the bits of red.
