Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #27

I stumbled upon this great new (to me!) sketch challenge yesterday, and immediately wanted to play!  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge has lovely sketches that come out on Mondays, and a wonderful design team that posts on Wednesdays.  This is my first time cutting into CTMH's holiday Sparkle & Shine papers, and it is also (gasp!) the first time that I've ever used Ruby??  It really is a lovely holiday red, so is on my list to add to my order today:
The stamped images look a little pale in the photo, they're a bit darker in real life.  The deer are stamped in Whisper, the sentiment in Slate, and the swirly snow in Heavenly Blue.  I wanted to pick up the pale blue a little more, so the zigzag stitching is blue also - hard to see, though.  I added chunky glitter to the snowflakes and swirls for a little extra sparkle.  Here was our sketch:
Patterned papers are Sparkle & Shine; Cardstock is Slate, Ruby & White Daisy; Inks are Slate, Whisper & Heavenly Blue; Stamp sets are Nature's Gift, Snow Flurries & Peace on Earth; -all Close To My Heart; Martha Stewart punch; Baker's Twine, The Twinery.

Wow Karen, this is really fabulous, and I'm so glad I read the posts that go along with the entries or I would of missed the blue stitching. It is really fabulous, and I might have to scraplift this one. Thanks for playing along with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
