Papercraft Star Challenge 73!

Hello blogland friends!  This week over the Papercraft Star we have a beautiful sketch created by the super talented Kim of Paper Loves Glue.  What a great sketch.  I've actually made quite a few cards using this sketch.  For this one I went with a simple card so I could mass produce it.  Since I started stamping, family and friends expect the handmade cards from our family, and since I have a long Christmas card list, keeping it simple will keep me sane!  I started with a base of Shimmer white card stock from SU.  Then I adhered one of my "go to" images from The House Across The Bay called Crayola Grunge 024.   I printed this off on an ivory card stock and embossed it using a cuttle bug holly leaf folder.  I added a stripped patterned paper punched with a decorative edge punch.  The seam binding is from Kim's Etsy shop and makes bows beautifully.  The stamped images are from Waltzing mouse die cut using Spellbinders.  Super easy and fun!  I hope you have a chance to play along this week.  I'd love to see your take on this sketch!  Just link up your projects by Monday 6:00 a.m. EST for your chance to win some beautiful digital images from The House Across The Bay.  For more inspiration check out the rest of the Design Team's creations!  Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!
