2S4Y Weekly Sketch--Kazan's Sketch 13

Another week and another sketch challenge at 2 Sketches 4 You. Here is Kazan's sketch--

I don't know why I had so much trouble again this week. I think sometimes there's just too many possibilities! After an unproductive try on Monday evening, I came up with this card last night, and I love the way it turned out.

I used textured brown cardstock (Die Cuts With a View) and ivory linen cardstock and paper (wedding leftovers). The burgundy cardstock is leftover from another project. I stamped the ivory paper with a script stamp (Stampabilities). I used the same stamp on the ivory wired ribbon (more wedding leftovers) and added a button from my stash. I stamped a flourish ($1 Michael's stamp) under the ribbon and stamped a "Noel" sentiment (Brother Sister Design Studios). The holly and berries is a Sizzix die cut and I distressed all the edges with some brown ink. I like the shabby/vintage look it has. Thanks for looking!
