Stampin Queen's Sketch Challenge #11

Have you checked out this week's Stampin Queen's Sketch Challenge SQSC11 yet?  If not click here to check out what the guest designer's have come up with and all their fabulous cards. 

This sketch has tons going on  in it, but you can make it as simple or as complicated as you want.  Don't let it scare you off as there are prizes this week and you won't want to miss out on!

As in past week's I'm sticking to my "Holiday" theme with a vintage flair.  I chose the family silhouette from the Welcome Christmas stamp set (pg 36 IB&C) for my stamped image.  The image was stamped in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cardstock.  This piece of cardstock was mounted on a 1 3/4 x 2 1/2" piece of Garden Green.  

The card base is Whisper White cardstock layered with a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Cherry Cobbler that was texturized with the Snow Burst  Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (12406 pg 33 Holiday Mini).  I loved the plaid papers in the Frost Wood Lodge Designer Series paper (124002) pg 28 Holiday Mini) so decided to layer pieces of this DSP onto Garden Green cardstock to make the two of the required panels in the sketch.  The third panel is a 1 1/2" x 3" piece of Crumb Cake that was texturized with the Stripes Embossing Folder (123128 pg 218 IB&C).  The edges were distressed with Crumb Cake ink for a vintage look.   

I chose the 3/8" Quilted Ribbon Satin Ribbon on page 20 of the holiday mini for my ribbon and bow.  I think it goes perfectly and adds a bit of country charm to my card.  The buttons are tied with thin strips of Garden Green cardstock. 

The sentiment is from the Merry Crittermas stamp set which retired last year.
