I'm so exited today as today is the first day as a guest Design Team member for Sketchy Thursdays! I've been following them since they started and their submissions every month were barely 20! I've watched them grown and spread the word about them and it has obviously paid off since their weekly submissions have since tripled!

Well, without further ado, here is this week awesome sketch by Heidi:

and my take on it:

As you can see, I'm still behind with my scrapping (scrapping Christmas 2009 in October 2010!?) but I absolutely love how this layout turned out! I combined the two squares on the left side to make it one big picture. Of course, I used red and green as the main colors with a little accent of white and black. I handmade my own poinsettias (working on a tutorial for them right now) and the title box is actually a digital journaling box that I printed and cut with my own title.

The corner flourish is a RAK and it's by Prima E line (Queens Crown) and the other green pearls in the other side are Keisercrafts Basics Pearls. The red and green paper is by Scenic Route. I greatly distressed this layer using water (the water distressing tutorial is on my sidebar) and inked it. I also water distressed and inked the green punched background layer. I love how punched and distressed paper looks! I matted all this with a darker green Bazzill Cardstock.

Here's another close up of the water distressing and Prima's Bling:

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out Sketchy Thursdays and try out the sketch for a chance to win a RAK!
