For the current Sketch Saturday I decided to go with a non-Christmas/ winter theme. Printed some beautiful butterflies on vellum (You can find the butterflies, plus a few more options, here http://what-a-beautiful-mess.blogspot.com/2013/04/scraps-of-elegance.html). The sentiment is an old, old wood mount stamp from Embossing Arts.

Another card with a non-Christmas theme. This one is made with a wonderful image from a Beccy's Place digi set named Bear With Me. I printed the sentiment off on my computer (now sure where it's from. Have had it in my files for over a decade!) Added some fun decorative paper and scraps of clear blue document folders (behind the sentiment on the front and cut into heart shapes on the inside of the card) You can find packets of these folders in office supply stores. They are often cheaper than colored vellum, are more translucent, and a packet of them offers many colors.

I just discovered a new company that makes digis. Decided that this sweet little fairy (from a Crafting Desert Diva digi set named "Magical Day") would look adorable with a Santa hat and jingle bells. So cute! The Merry Christmas Sentiment is a wood mount from Northwoods Stamps that I've had for many years.Entered into:
