A Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti

Well, today it's my turn to share my latest card for the NOVEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI

At first, I wasn't sure about this one.  The little pointed shape (certainly a triangle hiding as my very first layer on this card front) reminded me of my very BASIC scrapbooking days where just a little paper here and there was about as fru fru as pages got back then.  Admittedly, I wasn't a fan (and I've come to the dark side where I'll put just about anything on a scrapbook page!)

However, once I got started with this little gem of a card, I realized it was a very cute addition (although I think it could have been a square instead of a triangle under there!).  It added just enough color to set off the rest of the card front. The patterned paper layered over that is from last year's Christmas 6x6 pad--VERY MERRY.    I added the WONKY DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts across the top and proceeded to create my focal circle.  I stamped the "joyful wishes" from the SENTIMENTAL CHRISTMAS SET in Salsa Red and cut the "merry" from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts set.  I stamped and colored (Adornit watercolor pencils) my favorite Santa stamp ever from the JOLLY HOLIDAY set, and then cut him out and added some sparkle with my favorite crystal stickles.

Sidenote:  Stickles work very well for instant glue for sequins when you accidentally leave your new bottle of Scotch (glue) in the car and you're too lazy to go get it.  LOL.

Here's a look at what I used today. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! Why don't you play along!?!?!
