Merry & Bright! Atlantic Hearts Sketch #31

Yay! It's Monday morning, well, afternoon now... Let's start over:
Monday means another fabulous sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
Here it is:
Intriguing, eh?
I've interpreted those sprigs/branches as celebratory confetti. I'm trying to use up my stash for Christmas cards this year (so I can justify a nice long wish-list of items to use in the New Year!), so I broke out some ric-rac trim. 
I put down some double-sided tape to secure it to the card base. I didn't have any ric-rac (how DO you spell that word, anyway?) in Juniper, so "made some" from card-stock with a Sizzix die.
The sentiment was another Sizzix die. I cut out the word "merry" in red and in white and inlaid the white one into the negative/left-over space of the red piece.
This shows the left over pieces!
Here's the finished card:
A few little silver glitter stars, some glass-head pins (in keeping with the sewing notions theme) and just a touch of Wink of Stella.

So, how will you interpret this sketch?
Visit Atlantic Hearts blog to see the sketch, available today. DT samples will be posted on Wednesday; you have all week to create a card, scrapbook layout, 3D item, home decor... let you imagination go!

Happy crafting,


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
