Card Pattern Sketches and Our Creative Corner

Hi all,  I have locked myself away in the airconditioning today and been a little bit creative.  Yes, I can hear a few of my followers going WHAT?  Airconditioning?  LOL at least those of you in the Europe or US and Canada where winter is in full swing.  Here down under, it's very much in the middle of summer and we are sweltering, the humidity has been horrid but the storms have kept away, we've only scored a little bit of rain from the heat and clouds.  Oh well, it's only for a few more months then it will start to cool off to a more bearable temp.  Anyway enough grumbling about the weather, it's not going to change because I grumble!

Here is my take on the Card Patterns Sketch this week 

I've combined it with the challenge over at Our Creative Corner and added a ribbon ruffle instead of the scallop in the sketch, I also went with a square card and oval shape.

I've combined my favourite Christmas colours together but missed the deadline for SU Only, I was really sad to see Handsome Hunter go out of the SU colour range.  One of my all time favourite greens and I still have a little bit left.

Cardstock:  Bravo Burgundy, Hansdome Hunter, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Versamark, Bravo Burgundy
Stamps:  Occasional Greetings, Illuminated (wheel)
Accessories:  Rhinestones, Very Vanilla satin ribbon, Scallop edge punch.  Bigshot Ovals die.
