My Take on Freshly Made Sketches #512

 Here's my take on this fun sketch.  Follow the link (click on the sketch) to see the inspiration their design team shared with us. I've been working with Christmas products because I just held a Christmas Stamp-a-stack last week. This is another great sketch because my pinecones could be swapped out for any number of things:  balloons, a birthday cake, seashells, flowers, a Christmas tree, an animal, stars, a little critter, and the list goes on!

TIP:  When adhering your squares, be sure not to adhere your card closed! If you'd like to create this yourself, I used these layers- Key: CS1: Card stock color 1 CS2: Card stock color 2  (different color than CS1) BW/VV:  Basic White or Very Vanilla DSP:  Designer Series Paper You'll need: CS1:  5-1/2" X 8-1/2" CS2:  3-1/2" X 3-1/2" BW/VV:  4" X 5-1/4" BW/VV: 2-3/4" "X 2-3/4" CS1 OR CS2:  3" X 3" (won'
