Saturday's Sketch Share!

Hello!  This was my teaching week, so you did not see me, but I did get time to do today's card before I started working on my class kits and then in the last couple of days I made an additional four of the one I am showing today to add to the card pile!  Speaking of my tag class, I did 5 less tags than in last year's class, but it still seemed like it took forever to get all the kits ready.  I am glad that I only do a tag class once a year, and that I can go back to cards!  Now, let's get to today's share.  I will show you my card, Debbie's card, and the sketch we both used.  Enjoy!
My Card

Debbie's Card
The Sketch
Both cards came out nice, I think.  Frankly, I wasn't sure about mine ... I liked it, but was it nice enough to do additional cards to send?  After Debbie had a chance to receive mine in the mail, I gave her a call, and she thought I should make more.  So, I did.  The bow on the sketch?  I thought it looked silly, but on the card, it so needed an element in that area!  And I have to say that the ribbon I found in my stash worked so great with the color scheme of my card.  Do you like the cards?  Since, I made more than one, I jotted down the recipe details for mine.

Recipe (my card):
Paper - Bo Bunny Snowfall 6 x 6 paper pad, Cardstock Blue, White, Brown
Stamps - Wisemen called Traveling Far: wood mounted stamp from Stampendous, sentiments by Verve Richly Blessed
Ink - Versafine Vintage Sepia, Versafine Deep Lagoon
Tools - Spellbinders Petite Oval
Other - Ribbon by May Arts, Rhinestones by Queen & Co., Gelly Roll glitter pen (on star)

I will be working on some more cards to send so I should be back early next week to show you what I have come up with.  Oh, I do want to make note, that I asked for suggestions for a good name for the obvious girly reindeer card I made on my last post ... my friend suggested Ruta!  Perfect! 

See you soon!
Happy Stamping!
