winter wishes and sketchy thursdays

If I had to choose only one stamp and die to be stranded on a desert island with, it would be the Papertrey Ink Jar Stamp and Die. I love this look! And now that I have the Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers stamp set as well, I'm all about making holiday cards using this collection.

The background paper on this card is from Lush by My Mind's Eye and the jar topper paper is Webster's Pages.

I made this card with two different challenges in mind. First is the Design Dollies Elements challenge: COLD. The other is the Caardvarks challenge to make a new holiday card using die cuts.

Today is also reveal day for Sketchy Thursdays. There are Copics up for grabs this week... so stop on by, see the sketch, and play along for your chance to win the Copics.

My page this week is another digital page. As a graphic designer by profession, it's always fun to switch gears and make something for fun instead of work.

There are so many great digital kits out there now that it really is fun putting these pages together in Photoshop. I use Creative Suite 4 in case anyone was wondering what software I use.

Thanks for reading my blog today. I hope to see some of you playing along with Sketchy Thursdays, Design Dollies or Caardvarks. So much great inspiration out there!!

Your card is so pretty, really like the soft colours you used.
Your layout is fantastic. I have yet to digi scrap. Once I use up all my papers I will give it a try teehee.
