What If? Wednesday Sketch Challenge at Repeat Impressions

We are officially in the Christmas rush but I'm still taking time out for What If? Wednesday at Repeat Impressions.  It's sketch week and wow, do I love this sketch. 


So happy with how this card turned out.  I think this is the card I'll be sending to our families this year but, shhhhhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell them.  Let it be a surprise.  

Heres's a close up.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions stamp 3805-J Winters Eve with versa mark then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  Matted on silver glitter paper, the image just pops.  

More silver paper to create the banner and embossing the white background makes a huge statement.  I was totally impressed by this Sizzix embossing folder.  I get very nervous when the folders have such sharp lines. I've had some (not sure of the brand) that just seem to cut or tear the paper but this one gave me crisps scores every time.  I was very pleased with the effect it gave to the card. 

Now its your chance to take a break from the Christmas rush to play along with the What If? Wednesday sketch.  Just design your own card using this awesome sketch found above, post it to the link here on the Repeat Impressions blog and you have a chance at a $25 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store. Now that's a great early Christmas present. Their stamps are the good stuff - great quality and they give a perfect image every time. 

I hope you'll play along!
