I'll let the journaling fill you in on the backstory:
Here's the sketch that inspired the page, created by my friend Valerie Mangan for The Studio Challenges:
I turned the sketch sideways and simplified a few of the details, focusing on the stars and the layers of patterned paper.
I used the Christmas Basics 6x6 Stack, the White Embossed 6x6 Stack, DCWV cardstock and DCWV glitter paper. The alphas are American Crafts, and the tiny alpha stickers are from the dollar spot at Target. I bought a few of these sheets because I love them so much :).
As always, there is a card sketch, too. Inspired by the layout sketch, I created this design:
My week was a little crazy with the holiday and some family under the weather, so I didn't get a sample card made - yet :(. You can see what the design team did with the sketch, though. Check out the challenge post here.
I hope your December is beautiful and filled with the happiest of moments :). Thanks for stopping by! Tessa
